"Ain't It the Truth [Outtake]" as written by Glen Ballard, Shelby Lynne, Sonny Landreth, Matthew Chamberlain, Michael A. Elizondo, Michael Christopher Landau and Bill Payne....
Life is short brother,
Ain't it the truth?
And there is no other,
Ain't it the truth?
If you don't love livin' you is slightly uncouth,
Ain't it the dignified truth?

Said that gal Du Barry,
"Ain't it the truth?
Life is cash and carry,
Ain't it the truth?
You got to shake it down or stir up with vermouth,
Ain't it the practical truth?

Love is a ripplin' brook,
Man is a fish to cook,
You got to bait your hook;
Rise and shine,
Cast your line!

You got to get your possum,
Ain't it the truth?
While you still in blossom,
Ain't it the truth?
Cleopatra and Delilah had it way over Ruth,
Mmm, them gels did mighty swell,
They sure did ring that bell!
Ain't it the gospel truth?

It's the truth, the truth,
It's the solid mellow truth!
