Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

Cheater Cheater - Joey and Rory

Cheater cheater where’d you meet her down at ernies bar? Did she smile your way twirl her hair and say, how cute dimples are? Did she use that line ‘your place or mine’ while you danced with her real slow? tell me cheater cheater where’d you meet that no good white trash hoe

Liar liar did you buy her whiskey all night long?
Did you hide your ring in the pocket of your jeans or did you just keep it on
When the deed was done an you had your fun did you think i wouldn’t know? tell me cheater cheater where’d you meet that no good white trash hoe

Now I’m not one to judge someone that I ain’t never met
But to lay your hands on a married man’s bout as low as a gal can get
Hey I wish her well and she rots in hell and you can tell her I said so
Cheater cheater where’d you meet that no good white trash hoe

Loser loser hope you love her cause your stuck with her now
Take your sorry butt load up all your stuff and get the hell out of my house
but I just wish you’d tell me this one thing before you go
Tell me cheater cheater where’d you meet that no good white trash hoe.

Now I’m not one to judge someone that I ain’t never met
But to lay your hands on a married man’s bout as low as a gal can get
Hey I wish her well and she rots in hell and you can tell her I said so
Cheater cheater where’d you meet that no good white trash hoe

Yeah I wish you tell me this one thing before you go, tell me cheater, cheater where’d you meet that low down uptown, slept with every guy around, pressed on eyelash, no good white trash hoe



Bad Habits - Kottonmouth Kings

Bad habits
Bad habits
Bad Habits

Bad habits, Bad habits
Picked a few up nine years in this game
Bad habits, Bad habits
Life style’s fast driving me insane
Bad habits, bad habits
Daily doses you just got to maintain
Bad habits, bad habits
Drinking beer, smoking weed, and a pack a day

A pack a day (Cigarettes) seven grams of weed (chronic) A beer when I’m ready (Bud light)
Yall know me, (Who?) yeah I got some habits, I picked up a few, it’s the d-lo-c so what chu gonna do?

The demons inside me, are clinging so tightly, the voices in my head say “You don’t wanna come down” m’kay.

A pack a day to get me by, an ounce of weed to keep me high
Alcohol still numbs the pain, some things in life just never change
I don’t know but I’ve been told, you live this way you won’t grow old
Our addiction hits so quick, these bad habits are hard to quit

Bad habits, Bad habits
Everybody has them, who you got to blame?
Bad habits, Bad habits
Flush it all away, go an’ spit it down the drain
Bad habits, Bad habits
Chemical dependencies have a hold of your brain
Bad habits, Bad habits
When my time comes, I’ll go out with a bang

I got problems that I don’t tell many, talk about bad habits shit, I got plenty
Nicotine, weed, beer, shooting pool and playing cards, mushrooms, pills, strange pussy fast cars

Yeah, Jonny Richter, pass the mic, better yet don’t, need to pass the pipe
I’m trying to hit that shit, but you’re not paying attention, I wanna pack a rip, don’t trip just keep sitting

A pack a day to get me by, an ounce of weed to keep me high
Alcohol still numbs the pain, some things in life just never change
I don’t know but I’ve been told, you live this way you won’t grow old
Our addiction hits so quick, these bad habits are hard to quit

Bad habits, Bad habits
Picked a few up nine years in this game
Bad habits, Bad habits
Life style’s fast driving me insane
Bad habits, bad habits
Daily doses you just got to maintain
Bad habits, bad habits
Drinking beer, smoking weed, and a pack a day

This wishing addition is kinda strange to me, gotta quit gotta kick for my family
Cuz if I crash fast everybody’s outie, And that’s way too heavy pressing on me

It’s the d double dash, I bash like an army, and when it’s time to mash, I crash really strongly
I always pop a pill with the three roll bent I complish my task, you can’t hold me (me)

A pack a day to get me by, an ounce of weed to keep me high
Alcohol still numbs the pain, some things in life just never change
I don’t know but I’ve been told, you live this way you won’t grow old
Our addiction hits so quick, these bad habits are hard to quit

Your eyes they just won’t open, you don’t know what you been smoking
Got your whole family hoping “Oh I wish that he’d just slow down” (slow down)
The game is tough and silent where these groups are just smokin’, soldier.
You’re smoking and then toking and you’re dead in the ground (Na Mean?)

A pack a day to get me by, an ounce of weed to keep me high
Alcohol still numbs the pain, some things in life just never change
I don’t know but I’ve been told, you live this way you won’t grow old
Our addiction hits so quick, these bad habits are hard to quit

Bad habits, bad habits



Nickelback - Rockstar

I’m through with standing in line
to clubs we’ll never get in
It’s like the bottom of the ninth
and I’m never gonna win
This life hasn’t turned out
quite the way I want it to be

I want a brand new house
on an episode of Cribs
And a bathroom I can play baseball in
And a king size tub big enough
for ten plus me

I’ll need a credit card that’s got no limit
And a big black jet with a bedroom in it
Gonna join the mile high club
At thirty-seven thousand feet

I want a new tour bus full of old guitars
My own star on Hollywood Boulevard
Somewhere between Cher and
James Dean is fine for me

I’m gonna trade this life for fortune and fame
I’d even cut my hair and change my name

[CHORUS]
‘Cause we all just wanna be big rockstars
And live in hilltop houses driving fifteen cars
The girls come easy and the drugs come cheap
We’ll all stay skinny ‘cause we just won’t eat
And we’ll hang out in the coolest bars
In the VIP with the movie stars
Every good gold digger’s
Gonna wind up there
Every Playboy bunny
With her bleach blond hair

Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar
Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar

I wanna be great like Elvis without the tassels
Hire eight body guards that love to beat up assholes
Sign a couple autographs
So I can eat my meals for free

I think I’m gonna dress my ass
with the latest fashion
Get a front door key to the Playboy mansion
Gonna date a centerfold that loves to
blow my money for me

I’m gonna trade this life
For fortune and fame
I’d even cut my hair
And change my name

‘Cause we all just wanna be big rockstars
And live in hilltop houses driving fifteen cars
The girls come easy and the drugs come cheap
We’ll all stay skinny ‘cause we just won’t eat
And we’ll hang out in the coolest bars
In the VIP with the movie stars
Every good gold digger’s
Gonna wind up there
Every Playboy bunny
With her bleach blond hair
And we’ll hide out in the private rooms
With the latest dictionary and
today’s who’s who
They’ll get you anything
with that evil smile
Everybody’s got a
drug dealer on speed dial
Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar
Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar

I’m gonna sing those songs
that offend the censors
Gonna pop my pills
from a pez dispenser
When they ask why I drink all day
I’ll say because I can

I’ll get washed-up singers writing all my songs
Lip sync em every night so I don’t get ‘em wrong
Then listen to the fans tell me how damn good I am

I’m gonna trade this life for fortune and fame
I’d even cut my hair and change my name



Goo Goo Dolls - Iris Lyrics

And I’d give up forever to touch you
‘Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You’re the closest to heaven that I’ll ever be
And I don’t want to go home right now

And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
‘Cause sooner or later it’s over
I just don’t want to miss you tonight

And I don’t want the world to see me
‘Cause I don’t think that they’d understand
When everything’s made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And you can’t fight the tears that ain’t coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything feels like the movies
Yeah, you’d bleed just to know you’re alive

And I don’t want the world to see me
‘Cause I don’t think that they’d understand
When everything’s made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And I don’t want the world to see me
‘Cause I don’t think that they’d understand
When everything’s made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And I don’t want the world to see me
‘Cause I don’t think that they’d understand
When everything’s made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am



Blue October - Hate Me Lyrics

I have to block out thoughts of you so I don’t lose my head
They crawl in like a cockroach leaving babies in my bed
Dropping little reels of tape to remind me that I’m alone
Playing movies in my head that make a porno feel like home
There’s a burning in my pride, a nervous bleeding in my brain
An ounce of peace is all I want for you. Will you never call again?
And will you never say that you love me just to put it in my face?
And will you never try to reach me?
It is I that wanted space

Hate me today
Hate me tomorrow
Hate me so you can finally see what’s good for you

I’m sober now for 3 whole months it’s one accomplishment that you helped me with
The one thing that always tore us apart is the one thing I won’t touch again
In a sick way I want to thank you for holding my head up late at night
While I was busy waging wars on myself, you were trying to stop the fight
You never doubted my warped opinions on things like suicidal hate
You made me compliment myself when it was way too hard to take
So I’ll drive so fucking far away that I never cross your mind
And do whatever it takes in your heart to leave me behind

Hate me today
Hate me tomorrow
Hate me for all the things I didn’t do for you

Hate me in ways
Yeah ways hard to swallow
Hate me so you can finally see what’s good for you

And with a sad heart I say bye to you and wave
Kicking shadows on the street for every mistake that I had made
And like a baby boy I never was a man
Until I saw your blue eyes crying and I held your face in my hand
And then I fell down yelling “make it go away!”
Just make a smile come back and shine just like it used to be
And then she whispered “How can you do this to me?”

Hate me today
Hate me tomorrow
Hate me for all the things I didn’t do for you

Hate me in ways
Yeah ways hard to swallow
Hate me so you can finally see what’s good for you



Ben Harper - Burn One Down

Let us burn one from end to end,
And pass it over to me my friend.
Burn it long, but burn it slow,
To light me up before I go.

If you don’t like my fire, then don’t come around,
‘cause I’m gonna burn one down.
Yes, I’m gonna burn one down.

My choice is what I choose to do,
And if I’m causing no harm, it shouldn’t bother you.

Your choice is who you choose to be,
And if you’re causin’ no harm, then you’re alright with me.

If you don’t like my fire, then don’t come around,
‘cause I’m gonna burn one down.
Yes, I’m gonna burn one down.

Herb the gift from the earth,
And what’s from the earth is of the greatest worth.
So before you knock it try it first,
Oh, you’ll see it’s a blessing and it’s not a curse.

If you don’t like my fire, then don’t come around,
‘cause I’m gonna burn one down.
Yes, I’m gonna burn one, oohhh



Ani Difranco - I’m No Heroine

You think I wouldn’t have him
Unless I could have him by the balls
You think I just dish it out
You don’t think I take it at all
You think I am stronger
You think I walk taller than the rest
You think I’m usually wearing the pants
Just ’cause I rarely wear a dress

Well…

When you look at me
You see my purpose,
See my pride
You think I just saddle up my anger
And ride and ride and ride
You think I stand so firm
You think I sit so high on my trusty steed
Let me tell you
I’m usually face down on the ground
When there’s a stampede

I’m no heroine
At least, not last time I checked
I’m too easy to roll over
I’m too easy to wreck
I just write about
What I should have done
I just sing
What I wish I could say
And hope somewhere
Some woman hears my music
And it helps her through her day

’cause some guy designed
These shoes I use to walk around
Some big man’s business turns a profit
Every time I lay my money down
Some guy designed the room I’m standing in
Another built it with his own tools
Who says I like right angles?
These are not my laws
There are not my rules

I’m no heroine
I still answer to the other half of the race
I don’t fool myself
Like I fool you
I don’t have the power
We just don’t run this place



Ani Difranco - Fixing Her Hair

she’s looking in the mirror
she’s fixing her hair
and I touch my head to feel
what isn’t there
she’s humming a melody
we learned in grade school
she’s so happy
and I think
this is not cool
‘cause I know the guy
she’s been talking about
I have met him before
and I think
what is this beautiful beautiful woman
settling for?

she bends her breath
when she talks to him
I can see her features begin to blur
as she pours herself
into the mold he made for her
and for everything he does
she has a way to rationalize
she says he don’t mean what he do
she tells me he called
to apologize

he says he loves her
he says he’s changing
and he can keep her warm
and so she sits there like america
suffering through slow reform
but she’ll never get back the time
and the years sneak by
one by one
she is still playing the martyr
I am still praying for revloution

and she still doesn’t have what she deserves
but she wakes up smiling every day
she never really expected more
that’s just not the way we are raised
and I say to her,
you know,
there’s plenty of really great men out there
but she doesn’t hear me
she’s looking in the mirror
she’s fixing her hair



High of 75 > Relient K

Relient K – High Of 75 Lyrics
We were talking together
I said, “what’s up with this weather?”
Don’t know whether or not
How sad I just got
‘Cause on my own volition.
What if I’m just missing the sun

And tomorrow, I know,
Will be rainy at best.
And the forecast, I know,
Is that I’ll be depressed.

But I’ll wait outside
Hoping that I’ll catch sight of the sun.

[Chorus:]
Because on and off,
The clouds have fought
Their control over the sky

And lately the weather
Has been so Bi-polar
And Consequently so have I

And now I’m sunny with a High
of 75
Since You took my heavy heart
And made it light

And its funny how you find
You enjoy your life
When you’re happy to be alive

[Chorus]

And the temperature is freezing
And then, after dark,
There is a cold frost sweeping
In over my heart

And we might break up
If I don’t wake up to the sun

[Chorus]

Sunny with a High of 75
Since You took my heavy heart
And made it light (made it light)

And its funny how you find
You enjoy your life
When you’re happy to be…
Alive



Who You'd Be Today > Kenny Chesney

Sunny days seem to hurt the most
Wear the pain like a heavy coat
I feel you everywhere I go
See your smile, I see your face
I hear you laughing in the rain
Still can’t believe your gone

(Chorus:)
It ain’t fair you died to young
Like a story that had just begun
But death tore the pages all away
God knows how I miss you
All the hell that I’ve been through
Just knowing, no one could take your place
Sometimes I wonder, who you’d be today

Would you see the world
Would you chase your dreams
Settle down with a family
I wonder what would you name your babies
Someday’s the sky’s so blue
I feel like I can talk to you
And I know it might sound crazy

(Chorus)

Today [3x]
Today [3x]

Sunny days seem to hurt the most
I wear the pain like a heavy coat
The only thing that gives me hope
Is I know, I’ll see you again someday

Someday, someday



 

I want to:
