Happy To Be Here

This song is by Todd Snider and appears on the album Happy To Be Here (2000).


All of my neighbors are all up in arms about something they saw on TV
Seems some politician got busted for something that won't make any difference to me
Now I'm sure it's all true and I'm tired of this too but I can't pray for some guy to fall
I let all them people do what people do, I'm just happy to be here at all.

I'm happy to be here to vote randomly on who ought to take the next dive
I'm eager to see what the downfall will be and all the hilarity on Saturday Night Live
Mostly it's all scandal TV these days, that's where the real money must fall
Down from the smog of some Hollywood haze, I'm just happy to be here at all.

I'm happy to be here, happy to be

Happy to be here to see how it goes when everything blows into space
I've been walking my tennis shoes right through my toes trying to keep up with the rest of the race
Mostly I stare out my window these days watching my dog chase her ball
I'll do my job here whatever it pays, I'm just happy to be here at all.
