That's life, that's what people say. You're riding high in April, Shot down in May. But I know I'm gonna change their tune, When I'm right back on top in June.
That's life, funny as it seems. Some people get their kicks, Steppin' on dreams But I just can't let it get me down, 'Cause this big old world keeps spinnin' around.
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 But I know one thing: Each time I find myself flat on my face, I pick myself up and get back in the race.
That's life, I can't deny it, I thought of quitting, But my heart just won't buy it. 'Cause if I didn't think it was worth a try, I'd have to roll myself up in a big ball and die.
