"Little Buddha" as written by and Dinning/guss/phillips/nichols....
Life is suffering
Tee-hee, ha-ha
Life is suffering
Tee-hee, ha-ha

Cold and shuddering
Tee-hee, ha-ha
Cruel and pummeling
Tee-hee, ha-ha
Smile on little buddha, smile on
Little buddha, smile on
It's only illusion then it's gone

Lost and struggling
Tee-hee, ha-ha
Life is suffering
Tee-hee, ha-ha
Smile on little buddha, smile on
Little buddha, smile on
It's only illusion then you're gone
Maya

    General CommentI feel like this song is about someone who is going through very hard times, hence "life is suffering", and even though he keeps hitting the rough parts of life, he still laughs on and is positive about it. That's kind of something I'm still working on in my life...
