Lyrics:

The Small Stuff

Do you ever get the feeling that the whole world's turned against you
And you're waiting for the other shoe to fall?
Do you ever feel you're on your last leg and you drew the short straw
And your hoping that the tax man doesn't call?
Are you waiting for your ship to come in the middle of a hurricane and finding
That the life boat has a hole?
Well if you are then take heart my friend and know you're not the only one
Who finds themselves with nowplace else to go

Don't sweat the small stuff
You will only be more bothered by the big stuff.
Don't let the bad stuff
Drag you down and make you lose your hair
Just let the good stuff
Be the thing that keeps you holding on
And don't let the bad stuff leave you crying, let the good stuff keep you laughing leave the small stuff to those who really care

Are you waiting for the next big thing to reach right out and touch you
And finding that it's not that big at all?
Are you hoping you'll get over it before it figures out that you are
Really are the one who dropped the ball?
Is there somewhere else you'd rather be but somewhere is a foreign film
where no one speaks a word you understand?
Well if you are you're not alone there's more of us in this old world
And frankly some of us just don't give a damn

Don't sweat the small stuff
You will only be more bothered by the big stuff.
Don't let the bad stuff
Drag you down and make you lose your hair
Just let the good stuff
Be the thing that keeps you holding on
And don't let the bad stuff leave you crying, let the good stuff keep you laughing leave the small stuff to those who really care
