1. I know I’ve lots ‘a reasons.. t’ hang my head ‘n moanBut i ain’t gonna be sorrow’s slaveI’m gonna keep my chin up, smile.. ‘n laugh my troubles away‘cause fact is I got it made
2. Sure, the whole world’s crazy you don’t need t’ tell me thatI see it from my windows every dayBut at least i got my eyes t’ look upon it ‘n you could sayJust one ‘a them reasons I got it made… Yeah…
Chorus:I got it made ... i got it made in the shadeI’m a lazy good-f’-nuthin’ .. but at least my bills get paid ‘n i ain’t never gonna be no millionaire but i don’t care‘cause in spite of everything i got it made.
3. I’ll admit that bad luck follows me like a map was on my backBut at least i got these legs t’ get around‘n someday when i learn t’ run, i’m gonna leave it in the dust‘n look out then, ‘cause people, i’m freedom bound…Yeah..
4. But even if i never do I’m gonna thank the Lord aboveEv’ry single day for what He gave‘cause even tho i ain’t got much.. I got myself ‘n that’s enoughas long as I do i got it made
