Frank Sinatra – Life Is So Peculiar lyrics

Oh life is so peculiar, you get so wet in the rain,
You get so warm in the sunshine, 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, nothing to eat but food,
Life is so peculiar but you can't stay home and brood.
Yes, life is so peculiar, a fork belongs with the knife,
Corn beef is lost without cabbage, a husband should have a wife,
Life is so peculiar, but is everybody's pair.
That's life (that's life)
(Oh life is so peculiar, the beach has only got sand,)
The oceans only got water, you never know where you stand.
When I get out to dinner, there's nothing to wear but clothes,
Whenever I get sleepy, there's nothing to do but doze,
Whenever I get thirsty, there's nothing to do but drink,
Life is no peculiar that it makes it to the top of the sink,
(Life is so peculiar,) it's so peculiar,
A fork belongs with the knife (the fork belongs with the knife)
Corn beef is lost without cabbage, a husband should have a wife,
Life is so peculiar, that's what everybody says.
(That's right.) That's right.
