That's Life (solo) lyrics

That's life, that's what all the people say
You're ridin' 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

I said that's life and as funny as it may seem
Some people get their kicks
Steppin' on a dream
But I don't ever let it get me down
'Cause this fine ol' world keeps spinnin' around

I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate
A poet, a pawn and a king
I've been up and down and over and out
And I know one thing
Each time I find myself falling flat on my face
I pick myself up and get back in the race

That's life and I can't deny it
I thought of quitting baby
My heart just ain't gonna buy it
If I didn't think it was worth one single try
I'd jump on a big bird and then I'll die

I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate
A poet, a pawn and a king
I've been up and down and over and out
And I know one thing
Each time I find myself falling flat on my face
I pick myself up and get back in the race

That's life, that's life and I can't deny it
There are times I thought I'd cut it out
But my heart won't buy it
And if there was nothing shaking of the tear of July
I'm gonna roll myself up in a big ball and die
My my
