That's Life

That's Life

Lou Rawls

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 in June.

That's life, funny as it seems.
Some people get their kicks,
Steppin' on dreams;
But I don't let it get me down,
Cause this ol' word keeps getting around.

Ive been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate,
A poet, a pawn and a king.
Ive 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 can't deny it,
I thought of quitting,
But my heart just wont buy it.
If I didn't think it was worth a try,
I'd roll myself up in a big ball and die
