"This Is The Life" as written by and Yankovic....
I eat filet mignon seven times a day
My bathtub's filled with Perrier
What can I say?
This is the life!

I buy a dozen cars when I'm in the mood
I hire somebody to chew my food
I'm an upwardly mobile dude
This is the life!

They say that money corrupts you
But I can't really tell
I got the whole world at my feet
And I think it's pretty swell

I got women lined up outside my door
They've been waitin' there since the week before
Who could ask for more?
This is the life!

You're dead for a real long time
You just can't prevent it
So if money can't buy happiness
I guess I'll have to rent it

Yeah, every day I make the front page news
No time to pay my dues
I got a million pairs of shoes
This is the life!

I got a solid gold Cadillac
I make a fortune while I sleep
You can tell I'm a living legend
Not some ordinary creep

No way, I'm the boss
The Big Cheese
Yeah, I got this town on its knobby little knees
I can do just what I please
This is the life!

That's right, I'm the king
Number One
I buy monogrammed Kleenex by the ton
I pay the bills
I call the shots
I grease the palms
I buy the yachts

One thing I can guarantee
The best things in life, they sure ain't free
It's such a thrill just to be me
This is the life!

This is the life!

    General CommentWhat a great song - the album it's featured on (Dare to Be Stupid) is one of Al's greatest.
    This was also the theme song to the movie "Johnny Dangerously" with Michael Keaton.

    General CommentIn addition to being a great song all by itself, this song is also the theme song to the movie "Johnny Dangerously" a very funny comedy about prohibition era gangsters
