Life is a series of impossible dreams, yeah Full of disappointment and it ain't what it seems Everybody's pulling you a different way You want to close your eyes and make it all go away But what you gonna do when the rent comes do And the dollars in your wallet are numbered few Or your neighbor comes knocking on your front door He wants the mower that you borrowed The night before your garage burned down Your boss is screaming 'Cause he walked in your office and He found you on top of your desk asleep But what you gonna do that's life!
CHORUS Life! Too much to do and too much strife Life! Your girlfriend left ya and it cuts life a knife Life! Seventy years and a nagging wife Life! You look in the mirror and it's Barney Fife (What do you mean by that? [First Time])
You wrecked your buddy's car and You cracked your head! It wouldn't have happened if you'd looked ahead and braked But your mind was racing 'Cause you was thinkin 'Bout chasing that girl who turned you down Everybody's talking 'bout it All over town But then things just get worse You look in the mirror and you think it's a curse Your hair is falling out on your pillow and all through the house But what you gonna do that's life!
BRIDGE Life is a dirty trick If you listen to the devil's lies But life is another man's treasure If he's given it up to Christ
Now wait a minute buddy My story ain't done God said it all when He gave the world His only Son To die on the cross Just when you think that all is lost There's hope for all mankind Just give it to Him And you can't find life more abundantly And that's the only reason for life!
