Ooo hoo, it’s the fun of your life
Bottle keeps spinnin’ spinnin
Devil keeps grinnin’ grinnin’, thinkin’ bout a war he’s winnin’
And ooo hoo, everybody is a star
Every star is the sun
Every sun is in the shadow of the father now
And ooo hoo, it the fun of your life
the bottle keeps spinnin’ spinnin’
the devil keep grinnin’ grinnin’, thinkin’ bout a war he’s winnin’
And ooo hoo, everybody is a star

This is the first, I feel you boy
Roll, roll, rollin’ that rock all day
No one lends a hand along the way
They just smile and say;
“See you soon, see you soon, see you soon.”
I’ll see you when the war is over
See you when this gravity stops pullin’ me around
When I get my feet up off the ground,
Finally lay this burden down, I’ll come runnin’

And ooo hoo, it’s the fun of your life
Bottle keeps spinnin’ spinnin
Devil keeps grinnin’ grinnin’, thinkin’ bout all my sinnin’
And ooo hoo, everybody is a star
Every star is the sun
Every sun is in the shadow of the father now

But you, oh you…
Never be lonely
Never blue
Oooo…
Never be lonely
Never blue
This poetry in sickness like this- beautiful and cruel
That’s just the way it is
And I can sleep but I can’t rest
They say that your songs are the best
And I am still a young man

Ooo hoo, it’s the fun of your life
Bottle keeps spinnin’ spinnin
Devil keeps grinnin’ grinnin’, thinkin’ bout a war he’s winnin’
And ooo hoo everybody is a star
Everybody is a star

Ooo hoo, it’s the fun of your life
Do do do…Da da da…

    General Commentthese lyrics are really off.
    heres the real ones if you want.
    i got them off of gary jule's myspace, so im pretty confident in their reliability.


    Ooh ooh it's a funny old life
    Bottle keeps spinning spinning
    Devil keeps grinning grinning
    Thinking about a war he's winning
    Ooh ooh everybody is a star
    Every star is a sun
    Every son is in the shadow of the father now

    Ooh ooh it's a funny old life
    Bottle keeps spinning spinning
    Devil keeps grinning grinning
    Thinking about a war he's winning
    Ooh ooh everybody is a star

    Sisyphus I feel you boy
    Roll roll rolling that rock all day
    No one lends a hand along the way
    They just smile and say
    "See you soon, see you soon, see you soon
    See you when the war is over
    See you when this gravity stops pulling me around
    When I get my feet up off the ground
    Finally lay this burden down
    I'll come running"

    Ooh ooh it's a funny old life
    Bottle keeps spinning spinning
    Devil keeps grinning grinning
    Thinking about all my sinning
    Ooh ooh everybody is a star
    Every star is a sun
    Every son is in the shadow of the father now

    But you oh you
    Never be lonely
    Never blue
    Ooh never be lonely
    Never blue

    There's poetry in sickness
    Life is beautiful and cruel
    That's just the way it is
    And I can sleep but I can't rest
    They say the old songs are the best
    And I am still a young man

    Ooh ooh it's a funny old life
    Bottle keeps spinning spinning
    Devil keeps grinning grinning
    Thinking about a war he's winning
    Ooh ooh everybody is a star
    Everybody is a star . . . look it up.






    everything in this song is pretty much straightfoward in its meaning, except i think, the part about Sisyphus. if your wondering, he is a greek mythology guy. according to ledgend he chained the god of death, Thanatos, so dead people couldnt reach the underworld. Hades intervened and Sisyphus was severely punished. for all eternity he was forced to roll a block of stone against a steep hill, which just tumbled back down when he reached the top. then the whole process would just keep repeating, lasting all eternity.

    hope that helps.
