lyrics

I don't have a car
But I can ride my bike fairly well
And I don't mind the rain; not at all
And I am healthy as far as I can tell
So why complain?

I don't own a house
I can barely pay my rent often times
But I have got a room of my very own
Where I can sit and write all my lovesick rhymes

So how can I complain, when there's food for eating?
How can I complain, when there's air for breathing?
How can I complain, when there's songs to sing?
How can I complain about anything?

I have lots of days that aren't so great
Where I don't feel I'll ever get very far
Where I don't like my face; not at all
But then I turn to my non-judgemental old guitar

And how can I complain, when music is singing?
How can I complain? I've got this chance at living
How can I complain, when there's joy to bring?
How can I complain about anything, anything?

I've got a bed for sleeping, and a heart that's beating
A passion lighting, a fire igniting
A song worth writing, a love worth fighting for

I don't have a car
But I don't mind the rain; not at all
