Don't worry, you'll get it

now the lyrics:

Do VERSE part
I was a young boy that had big plans,
Now I'm just another Shitty old man,
I don't have fun and I hate everything,
the world owes me so fuck you,
Glory days don't mean shit to me,
I drank a six-pack of apathy,
life's a bitch and so am I,
the world owes me so fuck you

do CHORUS part
Wasted youth and a fistful of ideals,
i had a young and optimistic point of view,
wasted youth and a fistful of ideals,
I had a young and optimistic point of view,

do VERSE part
I've decomposed yet my gut's getting fat,
oh my god i'm turning out like my dad,
I'm just a grouch sitting on the couch,
the world owes me so fuck you,
the wifes a nag and the kids fucking up,
I don't have sex 'cause I can't get it up,
I'm always rude,
I've got a bad attitude,
the world owes me so fuck you,

do CHORUS part
wasted youth and a fistful of ideals,
I had a younf and optimistic point of view,
wasted youth and a fistful of ideals,
i had a young and optimistic point of view,

do SOLO

do VERSE part
I was a young boy that had big plans,
now i'm just another shitty old man,
i don't have fun and I hate everything,
the world owes me so fuck you,
the world owes me so fuck you,
the world owes me so fuck you,


Damn, am I good?!
