Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
That's life, that's what all the 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
Verse 2
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 ol' world it keeps spinning around
Verse 3
I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate
A poet, a p*** 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
Verse 4
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
Verse 5
I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate
A poet, a p*** and a king
I've been up and down and over and out
And I know one thing
Each time I find myself laying flat on my face
I just pick myself up and get back in the race
Verse 6
That's life
That's life and I can't deny it
Many times I thought of cutting out
But my heart won't buy it
But if there's nothing shakin' come this here july
I'm gonna roll myself up in a big ball and die
