[Intro]
Em
To the gods in the sky, there’s one thing you can do
Am
You can send us some sun and we’ll play you this tune
Em F
Because sitting in our room lying down with a scoop
G
And the sunshine through our window

[Chorus]
C
It’s days like these that make us happy
G F
Like a puppy getting lucky with Lassie
C
Hassle-free hours passing by with that beat (One, two)
G F C
Singing “days like these” kicking back, just doing what we do
G F C G
Woah, woah, woah

[Verse 1]
C
Number one I wanna find some loving in the sun
Dm
With someone that can make me growl and hum
C
Say, “Hmmm…” a boom a boom shak
Dm
And the beat that she throw at me knocking me flat
C
Number two, I’d cruise where the grass is smooth
Dm Dmaddb9
And the sound of the sea is a dreamy melody
C
Snooze all afternoon
Til the night time wake me cause shakedown soon

C
Number three, I’d be dancing like a monkey up a tree
Dm Dmaddb9
Find sweet simplicity by kissing my honey
C
Get funky like Bond when he’s played by Connery
Dm Dmaddb9
And get crafty like Don Corleone
C
Four, watching Oliver jam a little more
Dm Dmaddb9
Remember the night when I saw
C
What I never never never seen before
Dm Dmaddb9
Lavender wrestling a rich wild boar
C Dm Dmaddb9 C
Woah, woah, woah

It’s days like these that make us happy
G F
Like a puppy getting lucky with Lassie
C
Hassle-free hours passing by with that beat (One, two)
G F C
Singing “days like these” kicking back, just doing what we do
G F C G
Woah, woah, woah

[Verse 2]
Whack, please get back, wake up on the attack
Work myself frantic to the moon and back
Now it’s evening and the sausages are frying out back
I write my rhyme for this track as the sky fade to black
Now I remember earlier in the day as I was swimming through the bay
A bass player I know swum my way, he said, “G’day
Hey wanna go see some reggae?
Starts at 8 and plays through to sunrise the next day”

So 9 o’clock sees me heading out towards to tabernacle
Hardcore reggae beat bring me feet out of these shackles
Hardcore reggae DJ I Salute you, crackle crackle crackle
Crackle of the vinyl, now I’m high, now a spectacular night ahead
I met a Mexican called Juan (There’s a party on the hill would you like to come?)
Yeah (And bring a bottle of rum)
Can’t afford it, but I bought it
Right then I sung

It’s nights like these that you know that your alive
Nights like these that you know that you got fire
Nights like these when you don’t have to try
Fall in love and kiss and smile from every girl walking by
I’m alive, I’m alive, I’m alive, I’m alive
And my eyes want to cry cause the night and the sky
Is so high and my life is sublime and it’s mine and it’s time
(It’s now time)

It’s nights like these when you know that your alive
Nights like these when you know that you got fire
Nights like these when you’re laughing til you cry
Nights like these when I’m drowning in your eyes

It’s nights like these when you know that your alive
Nights like these when you know that you got fire
Nights like these when you’re laughing til you cry
It’s all about love and giving

[Chorus]
C
It’s days like these that make us happy
G F
Like a puppy getting lucky with Lassie
C
Hassle-free hours passing by with that beat (One, two)
G F C
Singing “days like these” kicking back, just doing what we do
G F C G
Woah, woah, woah

[Outro]
C Dm
And dirty hands, I like them see
G G
They make the music that we play sound oh so sweet
C Dm
And my mother always made me eat broccoli
G G
And now look at me, I’m as strong as can be
C Dm
So put some spice in my sauce, honey in my tea
G G
An ace up my sleeve and a slinky plan b
C Dm
And most importantly, my mad family
G
That made me lucky and for that I’ll sing about days like these
