Lyrics: Windows rolled down in my el camino
See another sleazy lawyer talkin’ on his cell phone
Pass my friend Jake, drinkin. in his wheelchair
Between the sprinklers and the sidewalk, he aint got a care

It’s a great day, it’s a beautiful life
Don’t let em getcha down this time
The best days, we aint seen em yet
This aint even as good as it’s gonna get

The so cal sun shines like a mango sorbet
All the pink flamingos dressed in black and gray
Kids and old ladies stop and smile at me
We live and we die and we’re caught in between

It’s a wild road, it’s a crazy ride
Don’t let em getcha down this time
Don’t worry baby, don’t you fret
This aint even as good as it’s gonna get

They say its like the perfect match without a fire
The say life’s a bumpy ride with no spare tire
They say it’s like a firecracker on the 5th of July
I say “hell no it’s a beautiful life”

It’s a great day, it’s a beautiful life
It’s a great day, it’s a beautiful life
It’s a great day, it’s a beautiful life
Don’t let em getcha you down this time
When the radio plays some Tammy Wynette
This ain’t even as good as it’s gonna get

Said Dave: "I enjoy making a living making music as there is something always new to learn. If you know one instrument, you can learn another. If you know how to engineer one style, you can always learn another. My main question I ask myself when writing and making music is "what gives you goosebumps". The mechanics of songwriting and engineering can get quite technical, however at the end of the day its what makes you feel something."
