That's life
That's what the people say
Youre riding high in april
Shot down in may
I know Ive got to change my tune
When I get back up on top in june

That's life
Funny as it may seem
Some people get their kicks from stepping on a dream
I don't let it get me down
This big old world keeps spinning round

Chorus
Ive been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet, a pawn and a king
Ive been up, down, over and out
And I know one thing
Every time I find myself flat on my face
I pick myself up and get back in the race

That's life
I can't deny it
I thought of quitting but my heart wouldn't buy it
If I don't think it's worth a try
Im gonna roll myself up in a big ball and die

Chorus

Last verse

Bye bye
Bye bye
