Minding my own business
Down at the Coconut Caboose
Happy hour was servin' up rounds of silver bullets
And all hell there was breaking loose
When a man who nearly won the lottery
Became a fool throwing chairs, cryin' out near me
I overheard the upset bartender say,
"I'd hate to use my Lousville slugger this way"

So suck it up buttercup
Move on, get over it
This ain't no school of hard knocks
You pull up your socks
You're having a fit
It's just a little bitty hold up, so calm down
The sky ain't gonna fall, no
Then when you start seeing red
Just draw a deep breath
Relax, it happens to us all

I stepped out onto the patio
I caught the surf rolling in by the night
A song came on from a long time ago
Back when I was a carefree guy
I was lost in the past when a cellphone rang
Some clown in a suit shouting, "Buy everything"
Well I went to grab the cellphone and throw it straight out to sea
When a senorita stepped in and whispered, "Leave it to me"
She told him,

"Suck it up buttercup
Move on, get over it
This ain't no school of hard knocks
You pull up your socks
You're having a fit
It's just a little bitty hold up, so calm down
The sky ain't gonna fall, no
Then when you start seeing red
Just draw a deep breath
Relax, it happens to us all"

Well that port-of-call was true paradise
I thank my lucky stars up above
The senorita I met the night before said,
"Yeah we were close, but don't call it love"
There are tall palm trees and a white sandy beach
I guess it's surreal as the times at reach
She left me for a surfer
Said, "He's got lessons to teach"
Well they left a crying parrot with me
So I trained it to speak
I said, "Can you say,

Suck it up buttercup
Move on, get over it
This ain't no school of hard knocks
You pull up your socks
You're having a fit
It's just a little bitty hold up, so calm down
The sky ain't gonna fall, no
Then when you start seeing red
Just draw a deep breath
Relax, it happens to us all"

It happens to us all
It happens to us all
