"Every cloud has a silver lining, every dog has his day."
She said "Now don’t stay nothin’
If you don’t have something nice to say
The tough now they get going when the going gets tough."
But for you my best was never good enough

"Now don’t try for a home run baby
If you can get the job done with a hit
Remember a quitter never wins
And a winner never quits
The sun don’t shine on a sleepin’ dog’s ass."
And all the rest of that stuff
But for you my best was never good enough

"If God gives you nothin’ but lemons then you make some lemonade
The early bird catches the fuckin’ worm, Rome wasn’t built in a day
Now life’s like a box of chocolates
You never know what you’re going to get
Stupid is as stupid does" and all the rest of that shit
Come on pretty baby call my bluff
’Cause for you my best was never good enough
