I am not going to lay around and wine and mourn
For somebody that done me wrong
Don't think for a minute that I am gonna seat around and sing some sad old song
I believe it's... half empty glass
Every day I wake up knowing it could be my last

Chorus

I am not here for a long time
I am here for a good time
So bring me some sunshine... the red wine
Pour me some moon shine
When I am gone pour... left behind
I am not here for a long time
I am here for a good time

Folks are always dreaming about what they like to do
But I like to do just what I like
I take the chance dance the dance
It might be wrong but then again it might be right
There is no way of knowing what tomorrow brings
Life is too short to waste it I say bring on anything

Chorus

I am not here for a long time
I am here for a good time
So bring me some sunshine... the red wine
Pour me some moon shine
When I am gone pour... left behind
I am not here for a long time
I am here for a good time
I am not here for a long time
I am here for a good time
