Smells Like Thirtysomething Spirit


Load up on grunge and be depressed

It's fun to do for two minutes

There's no award for self absorbed

Before you know you're 34

You're old, you're old, you're old, how old

Man, it's nice out, and this day is

Made by God, now, celebrate it

Life is too brief, let's complain less

You Nirvana imitators

Look at Dave Grohl, for example

Now he's cheerful, like the Beatles – yeah!

Now worship's not what I do best

It's hardest if I feel depressed

But when I do exalt His name

It always helps to kill the pain

Hallel, hallel, hallel, hallel

We're alive now, and this day is

Made by God now, and we're plain blessed

Don't be stupid couch potatoes

You're not Elvis in Las Vegas

Try to not go avocado

Try to be mo' jalapeno – yeah!

And I forget things while I praise

Oh, yeah, His blessings make me smile

I've found it's hard – it's hard to whine

And yell with Heaven on mind

Hallel, hallel, hallel, hallel

When we're wiped out, and this day gets

Very hard now, and it drains us

I've ready through this in Isaiah

Wait on God now, and He'll take us

From the bottom of the barrel

To the ski slopes, fly like eagles

Jeremiah 29 the 'leventh line does

Let us smile 'cause better times are set to find us

Never mind Doug, Wendy Whiner – get on fire!
