lyrics

Opened up the paper
Couldn't believe what it said
There won't be no more twinkies
Have to eat donuts instead
Talkin 'bout hard times
These first world problems of mine

Running late for work
According to my gps clock
My starbuck's was closed, I had to drive another block
Talkin 'bout hard times
These first world problems of mine

The restaurants always serve me, too much too eat
Then I have to toss the leftovrs at the end of the week
Livin in the first world ain't no walk in the park
But my mom always said, "Be happy where you are."

I need a work out
Off to the gym I go
But the tv there is always tuned to the wrong show
Talkin 'bout hard times
These first world problems of mine

Been a long day
I'll have a glass when I get home
All out of Pinot, I'm gonna have to drink merlot
Talkin 'bout hard times
These first world problems of mine
