That's life, that's what people say 
You're riding high in April, 
Shot down in May
But I know I'm gonna change that tune, 
When I'm back on top, back on top in June

I said, that's life, and as funny as it may seem
Some people get their kicks, 
Stompin' on a dream
But I don't let it, let it get me down, 
'Cause this fine old world it keeps spinnin' around

I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, 
A poet, a pawn and a king
I've been up and down and over and out 
And I know one thing: 
Each time I find myself flat on my face, 
I pick myself up and get back in the race 

That's life, I tell ya, I can't deny it, 
I thought of quitting, baby 
But my heart just ain't gonna buy it 
And if I didn't think it was worth one single try, 
I'd jump right on a big bird and then I'd fly

I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, 
A poet, a pawn and a king
I've been up and down and over and out 
And I know one thing: 
Each time I find myself layin' flat on my face, 
I just 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 cuttin' out but my heart won't buy it
But if there's nothing shakin' come here this July
I'm gonna roll myself up in a big ball and die
My, my
