La, la, la, la, la

An old man on his death bed whispered to me
You are the master of your destiny
A diamond is a diamond, a stone, a stone
But a mans not all good nor all bad

Call them as you see them
Youll stand alone
Youre the best friend that you ever had, ohh, yeah
Youre the best friend that you ever had

So, laugh when its time to laugh
Cry when its time to cry
Live while its time to live
Youll die when its time to die

La, la, la, la, la, la

Then he closed his eyes and left me alone
My old friends death brought his wisdom home
A diamond is a diamond, a stone, a stone
But a mans not all good nor all bad

Call them as you see them
Youll stand alone
Youre the best friend that you ever had, ohh, yeah
Youre the best friend that you ever had

So, laugh when its time to laugh
Cry when its time to cry
Live while its time to live
Youll die when its time to die

La, la, la, la, la, la
