Live Life

Live Life

The Kinks

Have you heard about trouble throughout the land
With the fascists and the left wing militants
Out of work executives are killing themselves
And the I.R.A. are killing everybody else
Don't panic, don't lose control
Keep your head, keep ahold
Act normal there's nothing wrong
Stay cool, just carry on

You gotta live life and be yourself
You can't live life for anyone else
You gotta live life that's all you do
Nobody gonna live your life for you

Don't get depressed when you read in the press
About world revolution and social unrest
Try not to panic when you switch on the news
And see crooked politicians and the unemployment queues
It's only life it's really fine
So don't you believe all you read in the headlines
Live life see it through
Carry on it's all you can do

You gotta live life for yourself, can't live for anyone else
You gotta live life, that's all you do
Nobody gonna live their life for you

Extra verse from long version:
Trendy intellectuals always take action,
For every cause that's ever been in fashion.
Weekend revolutionaries protest and sing
Because they're dedicated followers of any old thing.
They got every solution for every revolution.
They live in the slums just like the poor people do
But they'd rather sniff coke instead of glue.
Right-wing fascists beat up the blacks,
Then they salute the Union Jack.
You can't pretend there's nothing wrong,
It's not the end, so just carry on.

Oh, life's a mother, oh, life's a mother
Oh, life's a mother, oh, life's a mother

You gotta live life for yourself, can't live life for anyone else
You gotta live life
