Life is only a moving picture
Nothin' in life is a permanent fixture
Oh no, oh oh no

Black girls, white girls oh what a mixture
Lookin' as pretty as a picture
Oh no, oh oh no

We live, we die no one knows why
We come, we go, we see the show
And it's always movin', always movin'
Life is only a movin' picture

Oh, life can sometimes not be very nice
But then you make your choice so you must pay the price
You take the good and bad 'cos life's all work and play
And it soon fades away

Life is only what you make it out
So make the verses rhyme and all the pieces fit
There isn't any time to make much sense of it
It soon fades away

Life is only a moving picture
Nothin' in life is a permanent fixture
Oh no, oh oh no

We live, we die no one knows why
We come, we go we see the show
And it's always movin', always movin'

Look at all those movin' pictures
Nothin' in life is a permanent fixture
Oh no, oh oh no

It's only movin', only movin', only movin' pictures
