Oh, if you love the life you live, then you'll get a lot more done Be more inclined to take the reins and turn away and run It's very rare, it seems to get a lifetime guarantee So I suppose self satisfaction be the key
Oh, my father is a wealthy, self made man But his wealth does not consist of riches or acres of land And instead he has a family who are his biggest fans That's something that I one day hope to have
And so I'll cherish the simple things The easy took for granted things Like going 'round my mum's house for my tea And argue with my sister, only God knows how I missed her It's the simple things that mean the most to me
Ah, he gets up each day at five And starts the car and makes the drive And shutters up and starts the fryers Serves out food to all the buyers in the town
As they stand there in the same old line And get there every day at the same old time No, you're never gonna hear him grumble or groan 'Cause they're the people in the line that he built it on
And like me he cherished the simple things The easy took for granted things Like going 'round at mum's house for his tea And argue with his sister, only God knows how he missed her It's the simple things that mean the most to him

Fall Out Boy's "The Kids Aren't Alright" song title is not a reference to The Offspring's 1998 single of the same name. It actually alludes to The Who's 1979 rockumentary film called The Kids Are Alright.
