Come on, everybody, it's about that time
Come on, everybody, it's about that time
Come on, everybody, it's about that time

This life is short, don't waste it
This life is what you make it
This life is short, don't waste it
This life is what you make it

Don't call me jiggy, call the danceable
Throw out a beat to fill the dance floor
I'll be on the side, just sittin' and watchin'
Happy and content vicariously rockin'

It's great to be alive and well
Still in the capitol where I reside and dwell
Tell me if you hear me loud and clearly
Reality's just a bit more near me

So we make the most of every given minute
Here's a jam for the world and the 7 billion in it
Limits we know not, don't really want to stop
Go-getter's get what they got by goin' for it caught

In this crazy mix over the years' learned some tricks
Throw 'em on my records just for kicks
And it's obvious that if it's what God gives
See we gotta keep the energy positive, let's go

This life is short, don't waste it
(Don't waste it, I hope that you appreciate it)
This life is what you make it
(What you make it, I hope that you appreciate it)

This life is short, don't waste it
(Don't waste it, I hope that you appreciate it)
This life is what you make it
(What you make it, I hope that you appreciate it)

Hey, every new day brings a new day
To say thank you and relay my gratitude
For the time I've been given
Listen been given permission to embrace the rhythm

So live a little, come on, breathe a little
Tell me, who wants to rhyme for close-minded people?
Not I, okay good, me neither
This here feature won't follow procedure

Instead, the forecast includes a brainstorm
With elastic thinking to help me stretch the norm
Life's too short for me to conform
Daily renewal helps me transform

And live life to the utmost, here's a toast
To the future, faith, love and hope
And all the things that truly remain and exist
It goes a little something like, like

This life is short, don't waste it
(Don't waste it, I hope that you appreciate it)
This life is what you make it
(What you make it, I hope that you appreciate it)

This life is short, don't waste it
(Don't waste it, I hope that you appreciate it)
This life is what you make it
(What you make it, I hope that you appreciate it)

Come on, yeah
So, I'm thinkin' life is anyways

Life's too short to have enemies
I make no apologies for being friendly
Life's too short to live in poverty
I'm not talking money, I'm talking mentally

'Cause I've been broke and at the same time happy
I'm well aware of my history
So I approach life a little more humbly
'Cause being full of yourself will leave you empty

This life is short, don't waste it
(Don't waste it, I hope that you appreciate it)
This life is what you make it
(What you make it, I hope that you appreciate it)

This life is short, don't waste it
(Don't waste it, I hope that you appreciate it)
This life is what you make it
(What you make it, I hope that you appreciate it)

This life is short, don't waste it
(I hope that you appreciate it)
This life is what you make it
(I hope that you appreciate it)
This life is short, don't waste it
This life is what you make it

Bump, bump, bump
