"That's Life" as written by Dean Kay and Kelly L. Gordon....
(Don't let it get you, don't let it get you down)
(For this world keeps on spinning 'round)

That's life
That's what all the people say
You're riding high in April
You're shot down in May
I know I'm gonna change that tune
When I'm back on top in June

I say that's life
And as funny as it may seem
Some people get their kicks
Stompin' on your dreams
But I don't let it, let it get me down
'Cause this fine ol' world keeps spinning 'round

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
But I know one thing
Each time I find myself flat on this face
I pick myself up and get back in the race

That's life
I can't deny it
I thought of quitting, baby
This heart wasn'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

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
But I know one thing
Each time I find myself 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
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
I'm gonna roll
I'm gonna roll myself up in a big ball and die
You can't deny it
Don't let it keep you down
Don't let it keep you down
That's life
