Got out of bed, wasn't feeling too good
With my wallet and my passport, a new pair of shoes
The sun is shining so I head for the park
With a bottle of tequila, and a new pack of cigarettes

    I went through Genesis mostly chronologically and heard rumors of songs like this and was bracing myself but…oh god…it's so fun…I can't not smile during it…

    It gets point for being basically a parody and trying to be totally ridiculous and painful.

    and to add to my comment it's because that constant 'it's no fun being an illegal alien' it's likes that feeling when i feel sick in the morning and i hear this kind of song on the radio and everything seems happy and a blur. That's when i feel it's 'awful'

    Hey Cheech !!!! Did you get deported man ? Cheech ,"I was born in East LA ...." The only thing this Genesis video needed was Cheech Marin but Phil looked like his cousin.

    Genesis always told stories. This is just another one .. a pretty good one, actually.

    The whole point of this song is being absurd, don't you get it people? The part that goes from '' Consideration...'' to the instrumental intermezzo is actually horrrible

    Quit projecting your moronic taste on others, ThePrisoner.
