About Story of My Life

"Story of My Life" is the first promo single from Smash Mouth's 2006 album Summer Girl. The "Story Of My Life" music video was filmed in an episode in Season 6 of the VH1 reality show The Surreal Life, featuring all the housemates from that season, like Florence Henderson, Alexis Arquette, Tawny Kitaen, C. C. DeVille and others. The song has been used in promotion of Shrek the Third. This is the third instance of a Smash Mouth song being used in some fashion for the Shrek film series. "All Star" and a cover of The Monkees song "I'm a Believer" were both used in the first Shrek film.

I get to the party, but I'm too late
And I got stood up on my very first date
I listen to country and everybody goes rock
I get to the dance floor, that's when the music stops

It doesn't matter what I do, I just can't seem to win
But here I go again

And I say
Hey that's the story of my life
I had a good plan but it didn't go right
Oh no I'm overdrawn
I check my account and the money's all gone
Why me I don't know what to think
I finally get aboard and the whole boat sinks
Seems to be the story of my life

I pick a slot machine and lose it all again
But when I walk away, someone else always wins
When she finally calls me, I forget my phone
And when I'm starving, you know the kitchen's closed

It doesn't matter what I try, it all ends the same
And here I go again

Hey that's the story of my life
I had a good plan but it didn't go right
Oh no I'm overdrawn
I check my account and the money's all gone
Why me I don't know what to think
I finally get aboard and the whole boat sinks
Seems to be the story of my life

Just when it seems like it's turnin' 'round for me
There's always something that ends up happening
I found my car but I can't find my keys

I get to the party a little too late
And once again the music stops to play

Hey that's the story of my life
I had a good plan but it didn't go right
Oh no I'm overdrawn
I check my account and the money's all gone
Why me I don't know what to think
I finally get aboard and the whole boat sinks
Seems to be the story of my life
