"That's Life" as written by Dean Kay and Kelly L. Gordon....
That's life, that's what people say
You're riding high in April
Sitting on the ground in May
But I believe I'm gonna change that tune
When I'm back on top, yeah in June

I tell you that's life and as funny as it may seem
Some people really get big kicks
From stepping and walking on your dreams
But I'm not gonna let it get me down
Because this big world of ours is going to keep spinnin' around

I've been a puppet, pauper, pirate
Poet, pawn and a queen
I've been up, I've been down
I've been over, I've been out
And I learned one thing
That every time I see myself, fallin' flat on my face
This is what I do,
Say get up girl, oh get up girl, oh get back in the race

Oh that's life
I'm gonna deny it
I really thought of quitting once or twice
But my heart wouldn't buy it
And if I thought it was worth one single try
This is what I'd do
I'd call American Airlines, get dead on a jet and I'd fly

I've been a puppet, pauper, pirate
Poet, pawn and a queen
I've been up, I've been down
I've been over, I've been out
And I learned one thing
That every time I see myself, fallin' flat on my face
This is what I do,
Say get up girl, oh, listen to yourself, oh, get back up in the race

Oh, that's life
And I'm gonna deny it
I really, really thought of quitting once or twice
But my heart just wouldn't buy it
And if I thought it was worth a single try
I'd just roll myself up in one of those big balls
And I'd lay right down and I'd ahh
