LIVE THAT LIFE

Copyright 2018 Robert E. Shandor

 

Shootin’ down the highway like a forty-five

Playin’ my guitar at max overdrive

Swingin’ for the fence every time I’m at bat

Ya know livin’ to the limits is where it’s at

 

Don’t squander your time and deliberate

Just put your pedal-to-the-metal and accelerate

If you’re movin’ fast enough, well, you can’t be touched By a bunch of small thoughts and other things as such

 

You can chase a shiny penny at a dead-end job

Or sell your soul to the local mob, but I

Wouldn’t recommend the very first of these, 'cause

The second won’t kill ya from that boredom disease

 

You could buy a chicken sandwich or a burger deluxe

I mean for fifty cents more should ya give a cluck

Why settle for vanilla when spumoni’s so nice

Live large and get three flavors for the one-flavor price

 

Give it all you’ve got to give

And live that life you oughta live

Give it all you’ve got to give

Give it all you’ve got to give

And live that life you oughta live

Give it all you’ve got to give

 

You can be a little fish in a great big sea, or be the

Biggest fish of all in some pond, ya see

But why would you be a fish of any size

When they just get caught -- and then pan-fried

 

You’ll live large on a shoestring if you don’t buy shoes

And ignore the bad things in the nightly news

Sleepin’ on an airbed can feel like class

If you drink enough at bedtime to ensure you’re gassed

 

So you can go play big or you can stay at home

And live your life like some second-rate clone

Ya know you can live large on a dollar-a-day

If ya don’t define large in a financial way

 

Shootin’ down the highway like a forty-five

Playin’ my guitar at max overdrive

Swingin’ for the fence every time I’m at bat

Ya know livin’ to the limits is where it’s at  

 

Give it all you’ve got to give

And live that life you oughta live

Give it all you’ve got to give

Give it all you’ve got to give

And live that life you oughta live

Give it all you’ve got to give

 

Give it all you’ve got to give

And live that life you wanta live

Give it all you’ve got to give

Give it all you’ve got to give

And live that life you wanta live

Give it all you’ve got to give
