  • have you ever in your life experienced a day

    where nothing at all seems to go your way

    no matter how hard you try to get out of the rut

    you just could not break the string of bad luck

    a day where Murphy's law takes over your life

    and you just can't seem to do a darn thing right

    and when the day was over you just had to say

    you said man it's just one of those days



    my day started off kind of cool

    I brushed my teeth I comed my hair and I got dressed and went to school

    I stopped at the store for a breakfast snack

    a tasty cake and orange juice and a bubble yum pack

    about that point I proceeded to class

    I spoke to all the pretty girls that I passed

    I went to my room which was on the first floor

    I had no idea what I was in for

    I sat in my desk and minded my own business

    someone knocked on the door the teacher said who is it

    this girl walked in my imigination ran wild

    she stole my heart just by the way that she smiled

    I couldn't resist so I grabbed her butt

    she said what's wrong with you fool are you some kind of nut

    the teacher turned around while my arm was extended

    she looked me in the face and said Prince you're suspended

    I said your tripping it's just a bad habit

    she put it in my face she must've wanted me to grab it

    I pleaded my case but she wrote the pink slip

    then I just shoke my head I said I don't believe this

    she sent me to the head of the discipline staff

    I tried to play it off so I started to laugh

    I said ha ha this story is great

    it's a big misunderstanding one big mistake

    he didn't think that it was funny he didn't even smile

    he said mmm mmm mmm you're an unlucky child

    I stopped laughing and I said why is that

    he said just get out my school and don't you ever come back

    I said wait this is my school and you're telling me to leave it

    he handed me my books and said yep you'd best believe it

    as I walked out the school back at the wall I did gaze

    and said man it's just one of those days



    I woke up around a quarter to eight

    I wiped the sleep from out my eyes and I was feeling great

    I flipped my radio on and to my utter surprise

    I thought that it was eight o'clock but it was half past nine

    I hopped up and put my feet on the floor

    ran to the bathroom then I (ow) hit my foot on the door

    the pain was immense as it started to throb

    I said to hell with broken toes I was losing my job

    so I combed my hair then I brushed my teeth

    threw on my Fila suit and my Fila sneaks

    threw on my Fila underwear and my Fila hat

    then I ran downstairs and kicked the fila cat

    I grabbed my jacket then I grabbed my keys

    then I prayed out loud car start please

    the car started but what good was that

    I couldn't drive it anyway because the tires were flat

    I did the hundred yard dash to the top of my block

    then I grabbed a dollar bill from my left sweat sock

    the bus pulled up I was late and kind of nervous

    I got real mad because the sign said out of service

    I started hiking it I wasn't liking it

    I saw a little kid I stole his bike and started biking it

    I thought I got away but when I ducked around the corner

    there was twelve cop cars I said I'm a goner

    slamed on the flat I did 180 turn

    peddled the bike so fast I heard the rubble burn

    with the cops in hot pursuit I started feeling like a jerk

    I thought man all of this cause I was trying to get to work

    I could've got away I almost had 'em shook

    til this girl walked by something said not to look

    but I thought what the heck a little peek can't hurt

    but she made me miss the sign that said men at work

    I screamed out loud as I crashed through the baracade

    I saw my whole life flash before my face

    I felt kind of dizzy all I saw was stars

    I put my hands over my eyes and settled on the handle bars

    that was stupid I got off track

    cause about that point everything went black

    the next thing I remember is a head ache nagging

    I woke up face down in the back of a paddy wagon

    I pinched myself to make sure I wasn't dead

    a big Flinstone lump on the side of my head

    they took my picture and my finger prints

    I said wait you can't arrest me I'm the Fresh Prince

    I demand that you release me you incompetent fool

    you can't arrest me I'm the Prince you know the rules

    you got five seconds 'fore I punch out your lights

    but then the cop pulled out his gun I said ha ha psyche

    I had a call so I called my boss

    I figured I might as well what else could be lost

    boss I'm sorry that I couldn't make it today

    he said what are you talking about you're off today is Saturday

    stuck in a cell scared as hell

    I'm a hungry kind of tired and I hate this awful smell

    maybe one day I'll get smart and change my ways

    but for now it's just one of those days



    it's just one of those days
