Well I wake up in the morning each and every day
And I sit down at the table and I hear my daddy say
Life is nothing
It's a nothing
Life is nothing but a slap in the face
Life is nothing
It's a nothing
Life is nothing but a fat rat race
Ooh yeah yeah, ooh yeah yeah
Ooh yeah yeah, ooh yeah yeah
Every night I have a dream that you're taking off your dress
The only thing you're wearing is a button on your chest
And the button, it says nothing,
Life is nothing but a slap in the face
Life is nothing
It's a nothing
Life is nothing but a fat rat race
What is life?
What is life?
A rat race
A rat race
What is life?
What is life?
A rat race
A rat race
A rat race
A rat rat race
Ooh yeah yeah, ooh yeah yeah
Ooh yeah yeah, ooh yeah yeah
It's a jungle out there and I know I don't belong
So all night long I just sing my stupid song
Ooh yeah yeah, ooh yeah yeah
Ooh yeah yeah, ooh yeah yeah
Life is nothing
It's a nothing
Life is nothing but a slap in the face
Life is nothing
It's a nothing
Life is nothing but a fat rat race
What is life?
A rat race
What is life?
A rat race
A rat, a rat race
A rat race
Ooh yeah yeah, ooh yeah yeah
Ooh yeah yeah, ooh yeah yeah
Ooh yeah yeah, ooh yeah yeah
Ooh yeah yeah, ooh yeah yeah
