lyrics

Your house got repossessed by the man.
And your car was crushed into a cube.
Your fiancee moved out to Japan.
And you caught some kind of Mexican flu.
Not to mention that your hamster just died
And your cat and goldfish kicked off too
Before my heart starts to bleed
there's something I need
to say and we both know it's true

You should never come to me
When you're looking for sympathy
You want my opinion?
I'm not your f'in minion,

CHORUS - It sucks to be you! (woah-oh)
It sucks to be you! (woah-oh)
Here's my evaluation of your crappy situation
It sucks to be you!

Your girl just slept with your best friend
And you stepped in a big pile of dog poo
You're wondering if your bad luck's a trend
Or maybe you're just destined to lose.
In some ritualistic form of mass-suicide,
Your friends and family all left you.
The Kool-Aid's still on the table
And you're wondering if you're able
If maybe you should join them too.

Don't you get it, you can't go!
Is this something that you don't know?
We'd all miss you if you were gone.
Besides, who else would we dump on?

CHORUS -- It sucks to be you! (woah-oh)
It sucks to be you! (woah-oh)
Here's my evaluation of your crappy situation
It sucks to be you!
(KEY CHANGE) Sucks to be you! (woah-oh)
It sucks to be you! (woah-oh)
Here's my evaluation of your crappy situation
It sucks to be you!

(GUITAR SOLO)

(BRIDGE) Don't come crying to me
I won't give my sympathy
No matter how much you beg and plead
I won't give my sympathy
No not again!

How can you say that everything's wrong
When the hamster wheel is finally free
Your nose is still attached to your face
But that could change if you keep bothering me
So now we've reached the end of our song
Because I couldn't write another verse
But just remember when the pressures of life get you down
it could always be a hundred times worse.

Don't you ever come to me
When you're looking for sympathy
You want my opinion?
I'm not your f'in minion,

CHORUS 2X
