That's life, that's life, that's what all the people say
You're riding high on Monday, shot down in May
But I, I ain't never gonna change my tune
When I'm back on top in the month of June

I said, "That's life, that's life, ain't as funny as it may seem
Some people get their kicks, stompin' on a dream
But I, I don't never let it get me down
'Cause that big ol' world keeps spinnin' 'round"

Been a puppet, pirate, a poet, a pauper, a pawn and a king
Been up and down and over and out and I know one thing
Each time that I find myself flat on my face
I pick myself up and get back in the race

That's life, that's life, and I can't deny it
Many times I thought of quitting, babe, but my heart wouldn't buy it
If I didn't think it was worth one try
I'd jump right on a big bucket and fly

Been a puppet, poet, pirate, pauper, now I'm a king
Been up, down, I know one thing
Each time that I find myself flat on my face
I pick myself up and get back in the race

That's life, that's life, and I can't deny it
Many times I thought of quitting, babe, but my heart wouldn't buy it
If I didn't think it was worth one try
I'd just roll myself up in a big ball, ooh, and fly
