Lyrics

You’re 21 years old, but you’ve never been kissed.

Tough Cookies. Tough Cookies.

The girl you got a crush on doesn’t know you exist.

Tough Cookies. Tough Cookies.

You’re sitting in your bedroom all alone with your thoughts,

But no one ever got a date by feeling distraught.

Get off your lazy ass and use the things you been taught.

Tough Cookies. Tough Cookies. Tough Cookies. Tough…

 

They passed you up again for that promotion at work.

Tough Cookies. Tough Cookies.

It happens every time, enough to drive you berserk.

Tough Cookies. Tough Cookies.

Well someone not as smart as you is now your boss.

So go ahead and dwell upon the things you’ve lost.

You ain’t the only person who’s been double-crossed.

Tough Cookies. Tough Cookies. Tough Cookies. Tough…

 

Sometimes it’s hard to conceal

The loss of hope that you feel

When things aren’t going okay.

And when it happens to you

It’s hard to know what to do

To keep yourself from losing your way.

 

You say you missed your calling and you’re down on your luck.

Tough Cookies. Tough Cookies.

You can’t go any further than the place you’ve been stuck.

Tough Cookies. Tough Cookies.

You’re telling me your lucky breaks are fleeting and few.

The rest of us are doing what it takes to get through.

We’re sick and tired of hearing why it sucks to be you.

Tough Cookies. Tough Cookies. Tough Cookies. Tough…

 

(instrumental of verse)

 

It’s not that some get the breaks,

But that they have what it takes

When opportunity’s near.

It’s not the fault of the stars.

Some things are just what they are,

So you should make the best of what’s here.

 

You say you can’t go further till you know what’s in store.

Tough Cookies. Tough Cookies.

You’ve got a brain that works, but you don’t know what it’s for.

Tough Cookies. Tough Cookies.

You’re drinking pretty heavy from the tumbler of dread.

Well, pour yourself a cup of self-reliance instead.

Go forth into the future and we’ll see what’s ahead.

Tough Cookies. Tough Cookies.
