  • Lyrics
  • James and Brad of The Vamps wrote this song after being approached by Disney to contribute a track for the Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day movie. The pair penned the tune in about half an hour on the tour bus during The Wanted tour. "We work with a lot of songwriters," Brad told Digital Spy. "But it was really nice to sit back down to how me and James first became friends, which was writing songs together."

    "With this song we had to imagine a little bit and cater to Disney's needs," added James. "So lyrically, it was a little more child-friendly and easy listening, but it was good fun to write."
