​At The End Of The Day

This song is by Red Herring and appears on the album The Sooner You Accept It (2006).

When I was a little boy I wanted to
To be an architect.
It only took a couple of months
To change that blueprint.

Then I was a painter,
Went to the museum,
Studied up good to be an art nerd.

Till I learned a picture's only worth a thousand words.

(Doo-wop, Doo-wop, Ba Da)
So when did I change,
(Doo-wop, Doo-wop, Ba Da)
From doing what I want,
(Doo-wop, Doo-wop, Ba Da)
To doing what
(Wanna get paid!)
I want to get paid.

Take your million bucks
And throw it all away.
If you're not happy you're just broke
At the end of the day.

Then there was high school,
Playin' in the school band,
Wailing on the saxophone like a madman.
Gonna be the next Charlie Parker, you know.

Then the theatre,
Wanna hit the big stage,
Someone says, "Son, you know that ain't the way!"

Gotta do something to pay the bills.
Well, at least I can still "act" fulfilled.

(Doo-wop, Doo-wop, Ba Da)
When did I change,
(Doo-wop, Doo-wop, Ba Da)
From doing what I want,
(Doo-wop, Doo-wop, Ba Da)
To doing what
(Wanna get paid!)
I want to get paid.

Take your million bucks
And throw it all away.
If you're not happy you're just broke
At the end of the day.

Yeah!
