[Tribute to Frank Sinatra]

This is life and I don’t really know if it’s true what they say;
You’re flying high in April you’ll get shot down in may
This is life and when you’re hopelessly lost,
You’ll find the cost and pay the price,
Cause, this is life…

Now I’m not pessimistic but optimistic people really get to me,
You know the story where the glass is half empty,
Or half full, well if it’s half full you gotta drink it anyways
And all I’m saying is I wanna get someplace soon.

Not just stay sitting in my room, wondering why water starts to move, here’s a clue... it’s the opposite of condensation
‘The explanation is evaporation!’

Wishful thinkers are pink shirt winkers,
Show ‘em your fingers,
‘Cause it’s quite rude, to be talkin’ with your mouth filled up with food

Wishful thinkers are pink shirt winkers,
Show ‘em your fingers,
Yeah, you best quit, talkin’ with your mouth filled
Up with shhh… ‘cause you’re full of it

This is life and I don’t really know if it’s true what they say;
You’re flying high in April you’ll get shot down in may
This is life and when you’re hopelessly lost,
You’ll find the cost and pay the price,
Cause, this is life…

Since a young ‘un I’ve always been biting my lip
And chewing my nails ‘cuz of the way I constantly fail
If you constantly look at me, it’s undeniable that you’ll see
I’m developing a tic, or has the tic developed me?

I develop lots of these, every illness and disease..
My main illness if you please is hypochondria you see?
(What’s that?)

‘Hypochondria a deluded conviction of having a serious disease’

I’m not a Barbie boy, ‘cause Barbie boys are not boys,
Admittedly I learnt what boobies were on my toys
So, yeah I kinda am a Barbie boy, but does a Barbie boy
Make action man and Barbie touch each other’s… Oi!

Just a small kid, with early sexual motives
I got a head full of fantasies but I’m hopeless
At getting what I want, when I want… please
Take away action man get Barbie off her knees

This is life and I don’t really know if what they say is true;
You’re flying high in May you’ll get shot back down in June
This is life and when you’re hopelessly lost,
You’ll find the cost and pay the price,
Cause, this is life…

I’ve been a liar, a bastard, a fake and a fraud… from the gutter to bling! N’
I’ve been up and down and over and out and I still know nothing
Each time I find myself, flat on my face, back of the race
I just… pick myself up and get the frig out of this place

I’ve been a liar… a bastard… from gutter to bling
I’ve been a fake… a fraud… and still I know nothing
I know nothing, ‘cause nothing’s all I know
And if the way to go is only forward then onwards this show must go.

This is life and I don’t really know if what they say’s a lie;
That if you’re flying high in June you’ll get shot down in July
This is life and when you’re hopelessly lost,
You’ll find the cost and pay the price,
Cause, this is life…
