Lyrics

Keep me down
I'll do whatever you say
I'll just remember that old cliché
"That's life," you better believe it
That's what the people say
You're riding' high in April, shot down in May
But I know I'm gonna change their tune
When I'm back on top, back on top in June
(Now don't you worry)
That's life
(That's life)
Oh, it's funny as it seems
(Go ahead enjoy it)
Some people get their kicks steppin' on dreams
But I don't let it get me down
(Tell us why you said it)
'Cause this ol' world keeps right on going around
I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet
A pawn and a king
I've been up, down and over and under
And I know one thing
Each time I find myself flat on my face
I just pick myself up and get back in the race
That's life
(That's life, you gotta believe it)
And I can't deny it, yes I thought of quitting
But you know my heart, my little heart just won't buy it
But if I didn't think it was worth a try
I'd just roll myself up in a big ball and die
I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet
A pawn and a king
I've been up, down, over and under
And I know one thing
Each time I find myself flat on my face
I just pick myself up and get back in the race
That's life
(That's life)
Oh and I can't deny it, yes I thought of quitting
But I tell you my heart it just won't buy it
But if I didn't think it was worth a try
(What would you do?)
I'd just roll myself up in a great big ball and die
Keep me down
I'll do whatever you say
(Great big ball and die)
You've heard my story
That's life
