I keep laughing
Through the tears I cry
No way life is getting to me
We're all out there
Gotta live and die
No one's above it
May as well love it

Face the music
This is your time to dance
Let your life roll on
When they hit you
Just get up
And go another round

Oh baby, don't you know
I know the lowdown
Everything that's going up
Must go down
Speed it up or slow down
Life's a merry-go-round
Ride it high
'Cause we all hit the ground

I had money
And it all slipped away
Guess I didn't really, really need it
I can make it
Living day to day
Don't look for answers
Follow the dancers

Face the music
'Cause they're playing your tune
Let the night roll on
Take it from me
'Cause I've been the long
Long way around

Oh baby, don't you know
I know the lowdown
Everything that's going up
Must go down
Speed it up or slow down
Life's a merry-go-round
Ride it high
'Cause we all hit the ground
