[Intro]

D  G  A  G 

[Verse]

D             G                            A     G 
  Where is the moment when we need it the most 
D                   G                      A   G
  You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost
Bm                    A                    G 
  They tell me your blue sky's faded to grey
                  D               Em 
The tell me your passion's gone away
                              A  G  A 
And I don't need no carrying on 

D               G                      A  G
  Stand in the line just ahead of the law
D                   G                        A  G 
  You're faking a smile with the coffee you go 
Bm                  A                   G 
  You tell me your life's been way off line 
                   D           Em 
You're falling to pieces everytime 
                             A 
And I don't need no carrying on 


[Chorus]
                     D
Cause you had a bad day 
                   G 
You're taking one down 
                Em                    A
You sing a sad song just to turn it around 
                    D 
You say you don't know 
                   G
You tell me don't lie
                Em                    A 
You work at a smile and you go for a ride 
               Bm 
You had a bad day
                  A
The camera don't lie
                    G                         D
You're coming back down and you really don't mind 
               Em   A
You had a bad day 
                
You had a bad day 

D G A G
D G A G

Bm                A          G
Well you need a blue sky holiday
                   D                 Em
The point is they laugh at what you say 
                             A 
And I don't need no carrying on 


[Chorus]
                     D
Cause you had a bad day 
                   G 
You're taking one down 
                Em                    A
You sing a sad song just to turn it around 
                    D 
You say you don't know 
                   G
You tell me don't lie
                Em                    A 
You work at a smile and you go for a ride 
               Bm 
You had a bad day
                  A
The camera don't lie
                    G                         D
You're coming back down and you really don't mind 
               Em   A
You had a bad day 
  Em    A      
You had a bad day

F               
Sometimes the system goes on the blink
         Bb
And the whole thing it turns out wrong 
     F
You might not make it back and you know 
                Bb
That you could be well oh that strong 
              A   
Well I'm not wrong 

D                G                           A
So where is the passion when you need it the most 
G
Oh you and I 
D                G                       A
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost 


[Chorus]

                     D
Cause you had a bad day 
                   G 
You're taking one down 
                Em                    A
You sing a sad song just to turn it around 
                    D 
You say you don't know 
                   G
You tell me don't lie
                Em                    A 
You work at a smile and you go for a ride 
               Bm 
You had a bad day
                  Bb 
It seem what you like 
                D               E
And how does it feel for one more time 
               G   A
You had a bad day
              D  G  Em A  x4 (fade out)
had a bad day
