"That's the Life" as written by and Randy Newman....
Bright lights, big city, that's where we gotta go
Where the food is great and the bugs are so pretty
I'd like to get my arms around a hundred or so
I'd hug 'em, squeeze 'em, hold 'em tight
Sleep all day, dance all night
I want the bright lights and the big city
That's the life for me, yeah, that's the life for

You little maggot
Have you never seen the moon
Gliding 'cross the western sky
A dead oak tree by the waterside
Putrid vapors rising

That sounds lovely, dear. I'm sure we all agree
But I prefer the sunshine
A little park right in the center of the town
Flowers everywhere, children all around me
I'd love it
Landing on a baby's cheek so warm
It's wonderful
(Wonderful)
That's the life for me
That's the life for me
That's the life,
That's the life for me

Elegant conversation
(Bright lights, big city)
An elevated point of view
(That's where I'd go)
Intellectual stimulation
(Yeah, maybe for you)
And someone you love to share it with you
(It would be wonderful, wonderful)
That's the life for me
That's the life for me
That's the life
That's the life
That's the life
That's the life for
