With apologies to Ice Cube. An homage to his rap, “Today Was a Good Day,” and sung to his beat.
Just waking up in the morning gotta thank God
I don’t know but today seems kinda odd
No aches and pains in my aging bod
Son cooks the breakfast with no prod
I got my grub on but didn’t pig out
Finally got a call from a guy want to hang out
Hooked it up for later as I hit the do’
Hoping that I’ll live another twenty fo’
I gotta go cause I got me a Mazda 6
And if I hit the switch, I can zoom in the mix
Had to pull up at a red light
Looking in my mirror not a beggar in sight
And everything is alright
Got a text from Jim and he can cuddle all night
Called up the girlies and I’m asking ya’ll
What bar are we doing last call?
Get me to the bar and I’m trouble
Last week fucked around and ordered triple doubles
I can’t believe, today was a perfect day.
Drove to the condo, checked the bloggers
Didn’t even get no static from the trollers
Cause yesterday them men tried to blast me
Incels online rolled right past me
No flexin’, didn’t even look in a woman’s direction as I wrote on Intersection.
Gotta say, today was a perfect day.
Thank you to Lucy King and Kris Gage. Thanks Ice Cube for inspiration and some of the lyrics. Applaud and maybe I’ll be inspired to parody more rap and rock.
