"Everybody's Gotta Live" as written by and Arthur Lee....
Everybody's gotta live,
And everybody's gunna die.
Everybody's gotta live,
I think you know the reason why.

Sometimes the going gets so good.
Then again it gets pretty rough.
But when I have you in my arms baby,
You know I just cant, I just cant get enough.

(Oh yeah)

Everybody's gotta live,
And everybody's gunna die.
Everybody's gunna have a good time.
I think you, I think you know the reason why.

Somebody was standing on the corner yesterday baby.
He couldn't hardly tie his shoes.
But he had a harmonica and a kirsch wrapped around his neck, and he sure could.
Sure could play it good.

(Oh Yeah)

Everybody's gotta live,
And everybody's gunna die.
Everybody's gunna have a good time.
I think you know the reason why.

I feel like I've seen just about a million sunsets.
She said if your with me ill never go away.
That's when I stopped and took another look at my baby.
She said if your with me ill never go away.

(Because)

Everybody's gotta live,
And everybody's gunna die.
Everybody's gotta live,
Before you know the reason why.

I had a dream the other night baby.
I dreamt that I was all alone.
But when I woke up I took another look around my self,
And I was surrounded by fifty million songs.

(Oh yeah)

Everybody's gotta live,
And everybody's gunna die.
Everybody's gotta live,
I think you know the reason why.

Everybody's gotta live,
And everybody's gunna die
Everybody's gotta live
(You Gotta Live!)
And everybody's gunna
(Choking sounds) die

    TranslationThe lyrics are wrong. Instead of:

    "Somebody was standing on the corner yesterday baby.
    He couldn't hardly tie his shoes.
    But he had a harmonica and a kirsch wrapped around his neck, and he sure could.
    Sure could play it good."

    The correct lyrics are:

    "I saw a blind man standing on the corner yesterday, baby.
    He couldn't hardly tie his shoes.
    But he had a harmonica and a guitar strapped around his neck,
    And he sure could, he sure could play the blues."

    Also, instead of "fifty million songs" it's "fifty million strong"
