That's life, that's life
That's what all the people say.
You're riding high on Monday,
Shot down in May.
But I, I ain't never gonna change my tune
When I'm back on top in the month of June.

I said, that's life. That's life
Ain't as funny as it may seem,
Some people get their kicks
Stompin' on a dream.
But I, I don't never let it get me down
'Cause that big ol' world keeps spinnin' 'round.

Been a puppet, pirate, a poet, a pauper, a pawn and a king.
Been up and down and over and out and I know one thing:
Each time that I find myself flat on my face
I pick myself up and get back in the race.

That's life, that's life
And I can't deny it,
Many times I thought of quitting, babe,
But my heart wouldn't buy it.
If I didn't think it was worth one try
I'd jump right on a big bucket and fly.

Been a puppet, poet, pirate, pauper; now I'm a king.
Been up, down, I know one thing:
Each time that I find myself flat on my face
I pick myself up and get back in the race.

That's life, that's life
And I can't deny it,
Many times I thought of quitting, babe,
But my heart wouldn't buy it.
If I didn't think it was worth one try
I'd just roll myself up in a big ball and fly.
