There was this guy, he was down on his luck
He was truly poverty's child
Well, he had no home and he had no car
And he wore a weary smile
Moved out to L.A., knocked around for a while
But he was goin' nowhere
Then he did this movie and it did really well
Now he's a millionaire

You see life
Is a curious thing, yea
You see life
Ooh life, is a curious thing

I know a man who could paint the town red
Had a college degree in fun
Till the doorbell rang and a long lost flame said
"This little boy is your son"
Gave him a suitcase and a bear
And left them in a cloud of dust
Now he's checkin' out schools and drivin' car pools
Learnin' to adjust

He says life
Is a curious thing, yea
You see life
Ooh life, is a curious thing

Well I know that it can be demanding
I know that it can be unkind
I don't really understand it
But Lord sure knows I try

See life
Is a curious thing, yea
I said life
Ooh life, is a curious thing

Let me tell you 'bout a kid I knew
A pudgy girl back in school
She had greasy hair and geeky glasses
Object of ridicule
The other day in the check out line
They were ringin' up my rice and beans, huh
There she was just a pretty little face
On the cover of a magazine

Hmm, and I said life
Is a curious thing, yea
I said life
Ooh life, is a curious thing

Well I know that it can be demanding
I know that it can be unkind
I don't really understand it
But Lord sure knows I try

Just goes to show that you never know
Just what tomorrow may bring
But I'll tell you this that what it is
Is seldom what it seems

'Cause life
Is a curious thing, yea
I said life
Ooh life, is a curious thing
I said life
Is a curious thing
I said life
Ooh, life is a curious thing
