The sky is blue
But there are clouds in my head,
With big decisions looming ahead
The sun is out but
The room is so grey,
So much confusion headed my way
Get positive, try to be gay

News of the world,
Tea and biscuits in bed
The headlines said that Diana is dead
She couldn't act much but she put on a show
She always smiled
Even when she felt low
I used to fancy her a long time ago.

So today has got to be a good day,
Today is gonna be a good day,
Today is gonna be a good day,
Good day, good day, good day.

Holes in my socks
And I can't find my shoes
It's no surprise that I'm singing the blues
So many holes in my life still to mend,
And someone just said
That the world?s gonna end

So today better be a good day,
Today is gonna be a good day,
Today has got to be a good day,
Good day, good day, good day, good day.

If we blow away the past
With a bloody great blast,
Make it fast, make it fast
So have a good day today
Because it could be your last,
Make it last, make it last

Will it light up the sky?
Will it blot out the sun?
Well we've waited this long,
So it better be a good one
Good day, good day, good day

Yeah, it's gonna be a good day
Hey baby, if you come back home
It'll be a good day today.
They could drop a small atom bomb
On the city today,
But if you walk through that door, honey,
You know it'll be a good day

And now survival is my only aim
I call friends and see if any remain
Who was that girl who used to be my flame?
I'd call her if I could remember her name

So today is gonna be a good day,
Today has got to be a good day,
Today is gonna be a good day,
Good day, good day, good day, good day

Hey Diana, I've really got to learn
To take a tip from you,
Put on my makeup and try
To make the world take notice of you
Yeah, it's gonna be good day today

Good day, gonna be a good day
(repeat)
