Nik Kershaw – L.A.B.A.T.Y.D. lyrics

Permanent wave
Temporary laughter
Morality's soul
Living happy ever after

Never see the end
Never in a million years
And never be afraid

Cos even when my head says this is all there is
I believe there'll be another time

L. A. B. A. T. Y. D.

All our bodiesthree score years and ten
I know we're waiting for the big amen

Only one chance
Tears of blood and years of sweat and toil
Give it all up
Then shuffle off your mortal coil

Don't it make you sigh
Don't you want to bend and cry
Don't you be afraid

Cos even when my head says this is all there is
I believe there'll be another time

Life's a bitch and then you die
