Day 1081- Ain’t It Fun?

Shayna likes to send this song to me.  Tywana and I are coming back from Costco. Typically, I’m listening to politics, the 70s station, the 80s station, or maybe something on my iPhone rarely do I turn on normal radio. But, I turn on The Pulse on Sirius just as Ain’t It Fun by Paramore is playing.  I have no idea how much airplay this song still gets on the Pulse, because I hardly ever go there.

Shayna and I used to play this song on Guitar Hero, but I never paid attention to the lyrics until after Shayna left me here.  The tune is all bright and bubbly, but the words are kinda sharp, like Shayna’s tongue. I get a little chuckle every time I hear it. “You signed up for this, Daddy. Buck up little beaver.”  I can just hear her saying it.

I don’t mind
Letting you down easy but just give it time
If it don’t hurt now, but just wait, just wait a while
You’re not the big fish in the pond no more
You are what they’re feeding on
So what are you gonna do
When the world don’t orbit around you
So what are you gonna do
When the world don’t orbit around you
Ain’t it fun
Living in the real world
Ain’t it good
Being all alone
Where you’re from
You might be the one who’s running things
Well you can ring anybody’s bell and get what you want
See it’s easy to ignore trouble
When you’re living in a bubble
So what are you gonna do
When the world don’t orbit around you
So what are you gonna do
When nobody wants to fool with you
Ain’t it fun
Living in the real world
Ain’t it good
Being all alone
Ain’t it good to be on your own
Ain’t it fun, you can’t count on no one
Ain’t it good to be on your own
Ain’t it fun you can’t count on no one
Ain’t it fun
Living in the real world
Don’t go crying to your mama
‘Cause you’re on you’re own, in the real world
Don’t go crying to your mama
‘Cause you’re on you’re own, in the real world
