Life, life
Clouds and clowns
You don't have to come down

Life, life
Tell it like it is
You don't have to die before you live

You might get angry sometimes
But don't let it turn you around
All you gotta do is get your livin' now

Life, life
Clouds and clowns
You don't have to come down

Life, life
Tell it like it is
You don't have to die before you live

You might be scared of somethin' look at Mr. Stewart
He's the only person he has to fear
He'd only let himself get near

He don't trust nobody
If he stopped bein' so shady
He could have a nice young lady

Life, life
Tell it like it is
You don't have to die before you live

You're gonna be sad sometimes
You might wake up to find your pet is gone
But maybe, he's tired of bein' alone

Dog gets hip, it has to go
If you're lovin' you can't be sad no more

Life, life
Clouds and clowns
You don't have to come down

Life, life
Tell it like it is
You don't have to die before you live
