"Life's Too Short Little Ndugu" as written by and Chris Hughes Peter Krpan....
Wait...we'll have to wait our turn.
We'll have to fall in line.
Follow, live, love and die.
If we're all the same, get born, grow, married and die.
We all hate long good byes.
So don't bother and just die.
End it now.

If we're all the same,
Where did we come from...and why are we here.
What do we do when it all dies and we're all left here...all alone.
We always lose signt of everything.

Wait...we'll have to accept the change.
Even though we're all still the same.
Follow, live, love and die.
I have a mission, I have a goal that's why,
I'd rather live now then die knowing we only have one chance.

We have one chance, one life, one death, one time to smile.
One time to try, one time to die, one time to smile.
We all die one at a time.
So hold on.

    General CommentI realised that no one had posted the lyrics to this song, and it's my favorite off of "Are we really happy with who we are right now?" so, enjoy!

    General CommentThis song seems to me like a frusteration with everyone watching life go by and being the one to speak up and realize that life is amazing and you have to live it to the fullest. This is a great song. The "HOLDDD ON!!!'' part gives me chills

    General Commentamazing song, great lyrics, the title refers to ABOUT SCHMITD starring Jack Nicholson, a brilliant film which deals with a lot of questions which can be found in this song

    General CommentIn About Schmidt, it's the name of an orphan boy that Jack Nicholson's character sends money to and writes to.
