Life's A Slice

In spite of my advancing years One thing always remains constant My joy for life, love and happiness The blues are almost nonexistent Why was I chosen to be the lucky soul With this devil-may-care attitude While others can't seem to catch a break Every day they're screwed and tattooed Is it just the luck of the draw Do we really have a say in the matter You can surely bet your sweet bippy we do Betcha think I'm as mad as a hatter Where did that silly old saying originate What is a mad hatter anyway Must be from the dark ages methinks Don't hear of those guys nowadays Okay, seems I've drifted a bit off the track To get back to my love of life Guess I'll just let the good times roll “Jump up and yell, “life's a slice!”
