Life is so peculiar
You get so wet in the rain, you know I do
You get so warm in the sunshine, get my sun tan
It doesn't pay to complain, I never complain

When I get up each morning
There's nothing to breathe but air, yeah
And when I look in the mirror
There's nothing to comb but hair

And when I sit down to breakfast
There's nothing to eat but food
Life is so peculiar
But you can't stay home and brood

Oh, life, tell 'em about it pops, is so peculiar
The desert's only got sand, and that's grand
The oceans only got water, and you can't drink it all up
And you never know where you stand

When I get out to dinner
There's nothing to wear but clothes, yeah
And whenever I get sleepy
There's nothing to do but doze, yeah

And whenever I get thirsty
There's nothing to do but drink
Life is no peculiar
That it makes you stop and think

Yes, life is so peculiar, sure it is
A fork belongs with the knife, it sure does
Corn beef is lost without cabbage, I love cabbage
Husband should have a wife

Yes, life is so peculiar
But as everybody says
That's life

Life, yes life, it's so peculiar
A bird can usually sing, no words, I do too
A pearl is made by an oyster, New Orleans? Rampart Street
You can't be sure of a thing

When I get tired of restin'
There's nothing to do but walk, walk it off pop
And when I don't care to listen
There's nothing to do but talk, keep you big mouth shut

When I'm up in the airplane
There's nothing to do but fly
Life is so peculiar
But I often wonder why

Oh, life, is so peculiar, sure it is
A fork belongs with a knife, you know
Corn beef is lost without cabbage, leftover cabbage? Yeah
A husband should have a wife

Yes, life is so peculiar
But as everybody says
That's life

One more for me Jim, that's life
Let me hear it one time, that's life
All together, that's life, yeah!
