Bing Crosby – Life Is So Peculiar lyrics

Oh, life is so peculiar
You get so wet in the rain
You get so warm in the sunshine
But it doesn't pay to complain

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

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

Yes, life is so peculiar
The deserts only got sand
The oceans only got water
You never know where you stand

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

And whenever I get thirsty
There's nothing to do but drink
Life is so peculiar
That it makes you stop and think

Oh, life is so peculiar
A bird can usually sing
A pearl is made by an oyster
Man, you can't be sure with thing

When I get tired of resting
There's nothing to do but work
When I don't care to listen
There's nothing to do but talk

When I'm up in my aeroplane
There's nothing to do but fly
Life is so peculiar
And I often wonder why

Yes, life is so peculiar
A fork belongs with the knife
And you know what else? What?
Corn beef is lost without cabbage

Well, well, a husband should have a wife
And you know that life is so peculiar
But as everybody says that's life, that's life
Well, what do you know? That's life
