Lyrics

Life is Better When I Laugh At Myself


G C
I mess up more than I can say
D G
I do it most every single day
G C
Things don’t often go as planned
D G
I know I could be a better man

G C
I mess up these very simple chords
D G
I know I’ll never win any awards
G C
I spend too much time kicking the can
D G
I know I could be a better man

Chorus
D G
Life is better when I laugh at myself
D G
Sometimes I can’t reach the very top shelf
D G
It’s not like I can be somebody else, so
C D G
Life is better when I laugh at myself

Instrumental G C D G G C D G

Bridge
Em A7
Yeah, I know I get things wrong
Em A7
Sometimes that goes on all day long
Em A7
Maybe I’ll do better one day
C D G
Until then I’ll laugh to my face





G C
I mess up wherever I go
D G
Doesn’t matter if there’s rain or snow
G C
It’s been this way for my whole life span
D G
I know I could be a better man

G C
I mess up more than I can say
D G
I do it most every single day
G C
Things don’t often go as planned
D G
I know I could be a better man

Chorus
D G
Life is better when I laugh at myself
D G
Sometimes I can’t reach the very top shelf
D G
It’s not like I can be somebody else, so
C D G
Life is better when I laugh at myself
C D G
You know, Life is better when I laugh at myself
