Climbin' every mountain, always killing me Count the cost as days go by Monday I've got Friday on my mind Why don't we make love Instead of making plans.
Mother Nature, Father Time Maybe it's the family of man Angels cry when they hear that tune It's sleepless nights for the man in the moon
And it's the rhythm of life My mind's made up Lucy's sign is a Chinese dragon Oh, oh, she's got luck The rhythm of life is the force of habit Oh, oh, the rhythm of life.
Give the girl a future Give her what she needs Teach her life's a Iong flat road Maybe she'll have better luck than me Works so hard like he's still in school His pockets are jammed, but this man's a fool.
Within the rhythm of life My mind's made up Lucy's sign is a Chinese dragon Oh, oh-oh, she's got luck The rhythm of life is a force of habit Yeah-yeah, oh, the rhythm of life Rhythm of life.
Oh, when out of sight is out of mind Shut your mouth, I'm doing fine Mama's goin' back in time.
