People say, they say look at the money they save
But, I don't believe life's that way
An old man once looked me in the eye
He seemed to sigh, seemed to sigh
Don't let life pass you by, no no nooo no no no
He seemed to say he wanted me to run
The old man was once a boy and you're only young once
Because it's a life for the taking
And it ain't no mistaking,
Well it's a life, it's my life
Life for the taking

I can remember when I was just a little kid
The big boys used to beat me up a bit
But,I learned young that I couldn't cry
My mama wasn't gonna be by my side
She said "it's a life, Life For The Taking....."
