That's Life. That's What All The People Say




That's life
If you care what people say
You're filing forms in April
Audited in May
But I know I'm gonna change that sorry tune
With all the scratch tickets I buy in June

I said: That's life
Marinating in Jim Beam
Until you run out of scratch
Then it's Bristol Cream
But I don't let it, let it get me down
As long as the wallpaper
It keeps spinning around

I've been a muppet, a moper,
A Pilate, a doper,
My ass in a sling,
I've been off to school with a cup full of drool
And I know one thing
Each time I find myself
With a boot on my face
I make myself at home and open up another case

That's life
I tell you, you can't deny it
I thought of quitting baby
But before I can, I'm fired
And if you take a barstool anywhere nearby
I'm gonna ramble with my speech slurred,
And then I'll cry

I've been a muppet, a moper,
A Pilate, a doper,
My ass in a sling,
I've been off to school with a cup full of drool
And I know one thing
Each time I find myself
With a boot on my face
I make myself at home and open up another case
