  • Why, you want to tell me how to live my life?
    Who, are you to tell me if it's black or white?
    Mama, can you hear me? Try to understand.
    Is innocence the difference between a boy and a man.
    My daddy lived the lie, it's just the price that he paid.
    Sacrificed his life, just slavin' away.

    [Chorus]
    Oh, if there's one thing I hang onto,
    It gets me through the night.
    I ain't gonna do what I don't want to,
    I'm gonna live my life.
    Shining like a diamond, rolling with the dice,
    Standing on the ledge, show the wind how to fly.
    When the world gets in my face,
    I say, Have A Nice Day.
    Have A Nice Day

    Take a look around you, look its what he sees.
    We're living in a broken home of hopes and dreams,
    Let me be the first to shake a helping hand.
    Everybody, pray enough to take a stand,
    I knocked on every door, on every dead end street,
    Looking for forgiveness,
    what's left to believe?

    [Chorus: x2]

    Have A Nice Day.
    Have A Nice Day.
    Have A Nice Day.
    Have A Nice Day.

    When The world keeps trying, to drag me down,
    I've gotta raise my hands, gonna stand my ground.
    Well I say, Have A Nice Day.
    Have A Nice Day

  • Beau from Phoenix, AzBon Jovi took this saying from pro wrestler Mick Foley, who used this as his catchphrase for years.

    It basically is another way of saying 'f--k off'.
  • Keeri from Airdrie, Abif you watched the interview on the have a nice day disc you would know the song is geared towards stickin it to the man. the meaning is very sarcastic and ironic. its all about doing your own thing and not giving a f--k what people think. if you also watch the interviews Richie says have a nice day with a big sarcastic smile on his face and gives the camera the finger. the song says f--k off, i do the f--k i like!
  • Bob from Las Vegas, NvThis song stinks! George Bush rocks! Bon Jovi is awesome but i hate this song!
  • Bradley from Savannah, Gapreety cool vidio, we did that at my high school on the last day of school. we made alot of face sticky notes about 1000. it was sweet, they were everywhere :)
  • Sofija from Novi Sad, SerbiaBon Jovi was only glam on their first two to three albums. Their sound turned a lot more towards rock later on. Besides, glam metal artists don't like the term hair metal, because when grunge came along, glam metal bands were called 'hair farmers' because the industry was now promoting grunge. And, Krista, if you've seen the video you could notice Jon's hair is short and blonde, which wasn't the case back in the 80s. Then it was long, curly and somewhre between dirty blonde and brown.

    And it is really an Anti-Bush song, Jon mentioned that in more than a couple of interviews.
  • Michael from Morris County, NjPersonally, i doubt think the whole idea is Anti-Bush. Bad Ass song though
  • Krista from Elyria, Ohi agree emily! i like the meaning! i thought this was an 80s album!
    bon jovi is king of hairbands!
  • Emily from Abingdon, VaInteresting . . .
    Never knew.
