Paramore Lyrics

Ain't It Fun Lyrics
I don't mind letting you down easy
But just give it time
If it don't hurt now then just wait, just wait a while

You're not the big fish in the pond no more
You are what they're feeding on

So what are you gonna do when the world don't orbit around you?
So what are you gonna do when the world don't orbit around you?

Ain't it fun living in the real world
Ain't it good being all alone

Where you're from
You might be the one who's running things
Well, you can ring anybody's bell to get what you want

You see, it's easy to ignore a trouble
When you're living in a bubble

So what are you gonna do when the world don't orbit around you?
So what are you gonna do when nobody wants to fool with you?

Ain't it fun living in the real world
Ain't it good being all alone

Ain't it good to be on your own
Ain't it fun you can't count on no one
Ain't it good to be on your own
Ain't it fun you can't count on no one

Ain't it fun living in the real world

Don't go crying to your mama 'cause you're on your own in the real world
Don't go crying to your mama 'cause you're on your own in the real world
Don't go crying to your mama 'cause you're on your own in the real world
Don't go crying to your mama 'cause you're on your own in the real world

Ain't it fun
Ain't it fun
Baby, now you're one of us
Ain't it fun
Ain't it fun

Ain't it fun

Ain't it fun living in the real world
Ain't it good, ain't it good being all alone

Ain't it fun living in the real world
('Cause the world don't orbit around you)
Ain't it good, ain't it good being all alone (oh)

Don't go crying to your mama 'cause you're on your own in the real world
(Down to your mama)
Don't go crying to your mama 'cause you're on your own in the real world
(Don't go crying to your mama)
Don't go crying to your mama 'cause you're on your own in the real world
(Oh, this is the real world)
Don't go crying to your mama 'cause you're on your own in the real world
(Don't go crying to your mama)
This is the real world
This is the real world

Don't go crying to your mama 'cause you're on your own in the real world
Don't go crying to your mama 'cause you're on your own in the real world
Don't go crying to your mama 'cause you're on your own in the real world
Don't go crying to your mama 'cause you're on your own in the real world

Ain't It Fun Info:

• Ain't It Fun was released as the fourth single from the Paramore's self-titled 2013 album.

• The song was written by Williams as a sarcastic jab to herself over her unwillingness to grow up after moving to Los Angeles to record the Paramore album. She found herself away from her loved ones feeling completely out of her depth. "I was on my own for the first time ever and it weirded me out," she told Radio.com. "I felt like I was going kicking and screaming on my own. But it's funny, because I needed that. I needed a change of perspective to know I could do a lot of things on my own."

• Williams wrote the song after realizing there was no good reason to complain. "Here I am, sitting here whining about my life that's not really all that bad," she explained. "My life is actually awesome and just because I'm a little uncomfortable, like why am I making such a big deal out of this and not making more of this opportunity?"

• The song won the 2015 Grammy award for Best Rock Song
