"All of My Life" as written by and Betty/green Comden....
All of my life I've been dreamin' the wrong dream,
Hopin' the wrong hope, singin' the wrong song,
All of my life.

All of my life I've been pickin' the wrong horse,
Sayin' the wrong things, makin' the wrong bets,
All of my life.

I thought there was nothin' to life,
Just wait for that lucky hunch -
Just throw that lucky punch, wham!
You too can be the champ.
Yesterday you batted zero, hit a homer, you're a hero.
I thought there was nothin' to life;
Just wait for that lucky hunch.
There must be somethin' more to it
Somewhere along the line, I blew it.

All of my life I've been meeting the wrong crowd,
Wearin' the wrong tie, dancin' the wrong steps,
All of my life.

All of my life I've been off on the wrong beam,
Backing the wrong team, dreaming the wrong dream,
All of my life all of my life
All of my no-good life!

I thought the American dream was wait for that one big break.
Just give the dice a shake, wow!
You too can be on top, be an overnight sensation!
Meet The Press and Face The Nation!
I thought the American dream was wait for that one big break.
There must be somethin' more to it,
Somewhere along the line, I blew it.

All of my life I've been learnin' the wrong tricks,
Pullin' the wrong strings, makin' the wrong moves,
All of my life.

All of my life I've been off on the wrong beam,
Backing the wrong team, dreaming the wrong dream,
All of my life
All of my life
All of my whole damn life!
