I was hanging with some buddies on a Saturday night
When some guy starts talkin' tough and tries picking a fight
I might have punched him in the nose if it was back in the day
But I just shook his hand and bought his beer, it's better that way

Some guy gave me the finger on the freeway today
I think I might have cut him off, or somehow got in his way
I might have run him off the road if it was back in the day
But I just smiled and waved and let it go, it's better that way

It's better that way

So if you're in a situation and your feeling some frustration
Let it go, let go
'cause you can't change what happens but you can change your reaction
Don't you know "tranquilo."

Well I just realized this song is not very long
And if I really wanted I could go on and on
But I think that I've said everything I wanted to say
So I'll just keep it short and sweet, I think it's better that way
