  1. That's Life

Lyrics

That's life
That's what people say
You're ridin' high in April and
Shot down in May
But I don't let it change my tune
'Cause I'll be back on top in June

Yeah, that's life
Just funny as it seems
Some people get their kicks just
Steppin' on dreams
But I don't let it get me down
'Cause this ol' world
Keeps rollin' and rollin' around

I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet
A pawn and a king and
I've been up and down and over and out
And I know one thing
Each time I find myself flat on my face
I pick myself up and get it back in the race

That's life
Now I can't deny it
I've thought of quittin'
But this ol' heart wouldn't buy it
And if I didn't think it was worth a try
I'd roll myself up in a great big ball and I'd die

I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet
A pawn and a king
I've been up and down and over and out
And I know one thing
Each time I find myself flat on my face
I pick myself up and get it back in the race

That's life
I can't deny it
I've thought of quittin'
But this ol' heart wouldn't buy it
If I didn't think it was worth a try
I'd roll myself up in a great big ball and I'd die
That's life
