Your life’s a wreck, your house is mess/And your wardrobe way outdated/All your plans just keep on falling thru/Overweight and underpaid, under appreciated/I’m no guru, but I’ll tell you/ This I know is true/You better get to livin’, givin’/A little more thought about bein’/A little more willin’ to make a better way /Don’t sweat the small stuff/Keep your chin up.—Better Get to Livin’ from Dolly Parton’s Backwoods Barbie
