My house burned down in a flash of thunder
My wife ran off with a one legged plumber
My crops fell dead when the riverbed went dry

My dog got squashed by a pickup truck
My son ran away and got hooked on drugs
My daughter's knocked up by the class of '85

People say that life is good
It don't seem good to me
I'm lost without a paddle
And I'm headed up shit creek
People say that life is fun
But I don't know why
As far as I can tell
Life sucks, then you die


The government dumps its toxic waste
Right on top of my mother's grave
A team of experts say it won't do her no harm

But my sheep went crazy and killed my mule
I cut off my dick with a power tool
Fixin' the hole where the meteor hit the barn
And it hurt too

People say that life is good
But I just piss and moan
I got one foot on a banana peel
The other in the Twilight Zone
People say that life is fun
But I don't know why
As far as I can tell
Life sucks, then you die

Let me hear some yee-haws out there

I went to the store to buy some shells
My gun went off and blew the owner to hell
Now I'm sittin' here in jail, singin' this song
And one guy wants to cut me with a knife
Another guy wants me to be his wife, hey
I wish they'd hang me before somethin' really goes wrong

People say that life is good
Give thanks for what you have
When all you have is nothin'
Nothin' makes you glad
People say that life is fun
But I don't know why
As far as I can tell
Life sucks, then you die

I said, people say that life is fun
But I don't know why
As far as I can tell
Life sucks
Life sucks
Life sucks, then you die
