Story

I attribute my "having a life" (despite my health history, diagnosis and prognosis) to stubbornness, open-mindedness, friendship, joy and hope.

Lyrics

Days can be sunny with never a sigh
Don't need what money can buy

Birds in the tree sing their day full of song
Why shouldn't we sing along
I'm chipper all the day happy with my lot
How do I get that way? Look at what I've got

I got tremors
I got numbness
I got anemia
Who could ask for anything more? 

I got headaches
I got nosebleeds
Kidney problems
Who could ask for anything more

Bad prognosis
I don't mind that
You will find that
I'll prove them wrong

I am stubborn
I've still got hope
I've got good friends
Who could ask for anything more
Who could ask for anything more

I got chapped lips
Toenail fungus
I've got no hair
Who could ask for anything more

But I've got choices
I've got good friends
I've got laughter
Who could ask for anything more
Who could ask for anything more

Bad prognosis
I don't mind that
you will find that
I am gonna prove them wrong

Who could ask for anything more?
Who could ask for anything more?
