"You Bet Your Life" as written by and Ian Broudie....
Get a life, get a job, did you know you were
The kind of slob who's in bed asleep all day
I used to be that way
Here and now although I never say out loud

Now and then you know that there's a moment when
I could leave, get out now, get on
And roll the world is big and round
Anytime, anyday, I used to think that way

Oh but I know it's true she's got a hold on you
And then half your life, it just went sailing by
Her whole world's intoxicating me
All my senses are at sea

She's the kind of girl, she's got you in a whirl
It gets so complicated
Me, I'm not proud, I'll say now the girl is
So frustrating, keeps me wishing

Keeps me waiting
Lost in this world like a child all at sea
You see your life drifting by but today's all you need
Oh I just know it's true, she's got a hold on you

Oh and it feels so nice, this feels like paradise
You've bet your life
