LyricsEdit

Ivy:
That's life, that's what people say
You're riding high in April,
Shot down in May
But I know I'm gonna change their tune
When I'm back, back on top in June

Karen:
Mmmm, that's life, funny as it may seem
Some people get their kicks
Steppin' on a dream (Ivy)
But I just can't let them get me down, no, no
'Cause this big old world keeps spinnin' around

Ivy:
I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate,
A poet, a pawn and a queen

Karen:
I've been up and down and over and out
And, oh, the drama I've seen

Ivy:
Each time I find myself flat on my face

Karen:
I pick myself up and get back in the race

Both:
That's life

Karen:
Oh, I can't deny it

Ivy:
I thought of quittin'
Oh, but my friends just wouldn't buy it

Karen:
But if I thought it wasn't worth a try
Oh, I'd just jump right up on that big bird and then I'd fly

Both:
I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate,
A poet, a pawn and a queen
I've been up and down and over and out
And, oh, the drama we've seen

Ivy:
Each time we find ourselves...

Karen:
...flat on our face

Both:
We pick ourselves up and get back in the race

Karen:
That's life

Ivy:
That's life

Both:
Oh, I can't deny it

Ivy:
I thought of quittin'
But Eileen just won't buy it

Karen:
So sister

Ivy:
Mother

Karen:
Broadway star

Ivy:
Or wife
I just thank God for the present

Karen:
The present
That's life

Ivy:
That's life

Karen:
That's life

Ivy:
That's life

Karen:
That's life

Both:
That's life
