lyrics

Don't question, it just happens, this is bigger than all of us
Some people keep going, others spit and scream and cuss
Too many tribulations can make some days a trial
Take the verdict calm and collected, or take it bedeviled and riled

But don't sweat the small stuff, put too much weight on the light
Some things are just not worth the fight
You catch a lot of feeders when there's bigger fish to fry
It all depends on how you bait the line

Hot temper is cold comfort when you live in a house and home
One day you're king of the castle, next week you're booted off the throne
In the school of slow learners, there's never a passing grade
Drag yourself through the flaming briars, come out thinking you've got it made

But don't sweat the small stuff, put too much weight on the light
Some things are just not worth the fight
You catch a lot of feeders when there's bigger fish to fry
It all depends on how you bait the line

You'll dance on pins and needles when it's your hide you want to save
Act out like a coward or put on your bravest face

And don't sweat the small stuff, put too much weight on the light
Some things are just not worth the fight
You catch a lot of feeders when there's bigger fish to fry
It all depends on how you bait the line
