the day i died was the best day of my life

now the secretaries they got a smile for me
and the intray on my desks almost empty
I get a memo from executive joe
saying Rob the gob is getting kicked out
for embezzling funds from the company account
and id be lying if i said i wasnt chuffed
cos i always hated rob
and now they'll probbaly offer me robs old job

and in the park at lunch
theres no whinos on my favourite bench
none of that drunk chatter none of that pissy stench
and the little piegeons with the gammy leg
decide to dine from someone elses sandwich instead
and theres something about the city today
like all the colours conspire to overwhelm the grey
and this close to the fire i can feel no cold
but a rainbow halo around my soul

the day i died was the best day of my life
the day i died was the best day of my life
tell my friends and my kids and my wife
everything will be alright
the day i died was the best day of my life

G# chordG# D#m chordD#m
and rush hour crowd seem to part like the red sea
C# chordC#
and im stopping at the offy
F# chordF#
cigerettes and a pack to relax me
and as i cross back over the street
i guess i never saw that taxi

the day i died was the best day of my life
tell my friends and my kids and my wife
everything will be alright
the day i died was the best day of my life
