That's Life

Writer(s):  Dean Kay Thompson / Kelly Gordon/ arr. Ernie Freeman

That's life, that's what people say, you're riding' high in April, shot down in May.
But I know I'm gonna change that tune, 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' world keeps getting around.
I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet, a pawn and a king.
I've been up and down and over and out. and I know one thing:
Each 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 just won't buy it.
If I didn't think it was worth a try, I'd roll myself up in a big ball and die.
