That's life, that's what people
You're riding' high in April,
Shot down in May.
But I know I'm gonna change that
When I'm back on top in June.
That's life, funny as it seems.
Some people get their kicks,
Steppin' on dreams;
But I don't let it get me down,
'Cause this ol' word keeps
I've been a puppet, a pauper, a
A poet, a pawn and a king.
I've been up and down and over
And I know one thing:
Each time I find myself flat on
I pick myself up and get back in
That's life, I can't deny it,
I thought of quitting,
But my heart just won't buy it.
If I didn't think it was worth a
I'd roll myself up in a big ball
