Southern Rock, upbeat @ 132 BPM, written by; Rodney Nichols, Driven by Strat guitar, Male vocal with great back up harmonies !    Mood/ Happy, Optimistic, Preachy

   ABOUT:  This song is a chastising of those who would moan and gripe about their life,  their situation. We all know pessimists that wake up every morning complaining, always a glass 1/2 empty kinda person. Our singer scolds the unhappy soul and let's him know they might want to take a  look in the mirror to find the problem. Others have it much worse. Slap yourself, take heed, you have a chance, as long as you are standing  "above ground".

LYRICS: 

When you get out of bed the first words said I really don’t want to go, 
I hate my job and I’d rather stay at home.                                                                                                      On the job you whine and cry all day While you watch the clock on the wall, 
With your crybaby ways you’re lucky that you’re working at all.                                                            If the truth be known you got nothing to complain about 
                    As long as you are standing above ground. 

To hear you talk you’re the only one  the world’s treated so unkind, 
Beggars on the street would think that you lost your mind,                                                              Your favorite words are it’s not my fault, Somebody done me wrong, 
Just another verse in the same old wore out song.                                                                                      If the truth be known you got nothing to complain about 
                 As long as you are standing above ground 

Happiness is a state of mind you can take it with you or it stays behind,                                             You think you got it bad but it could be worse Just turn on the late night news, 
There’s people that would be better off in your shoes,                                                                          You blame the world for the troubles you have,  blame it on your attitude, 
Happy or sad it’s really left up to you                                                                                                                  If the truth be known you got nothing to complain about ,
              As long as you are standing above ground 

              As long as you are standing above ground
