If I had my life to live over again
I think I would probably do just the same
For though some bad mistakes I have made
I know I am wiser for these escapades

Things in life are seldom easy
Even your first beer makes you queasy
Your first fag will make you as sick as a dog
On your first drunken night you will sleep like a log

But all these things can teach you so much
How sometimes even to life you can’t clutch
Live life to the full one day at a time
And that really is a philosophy of mine

For you never know what will happen next
For your life is written out like a text
It’s just there for the taking
From sleeping to waking

So go out and kick the world in the teeth
Because one of these days you will be underneath
We do not live forever, just a short span
So I tell you this get your fun while you can
