Cest la vie !




                                                                                  


That's life (that's life), that's what all the people say
You're ridin' high in April, shot down in May
But I know I'm gonna change that tune
When I'm back on top, back on top in June
I said that's life (that's life), and as funny as it may seem
Some people get their kicks stompin' on a dream
But I don't let it, let it get me down
'cause this fine old world, it keeps spinnin' around

I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet, a pawn and a king

I've been up and down and over and out and I know one thing
Each time I find myself flat on my face
I pick myself up and get back in the race

That's life (that's life), I tell you I can't deny it


I thought of quitting, baby, but my heart just ain't gonna buy it

And if I didn't think it was worth one single try
I'd jump right on a big bird and then I'd fly

I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet, a pawn and a king

I've been up and down and over and out and I know one thing
Each time I find myself layin' flat on my face
I just pick myself up and get back in the race

That's life (that's life), that's life and I can't deny it

Many times I thought of cuttin' out but my heart won't buy it
But if there's nothin' shakin' come this here July
I'm gonna roll myself up in a big ball a-and die

My, my!

  1. On entend les influences bluesy et gospel/rythm'n'blues dans "Thats' Life". Superbe.

  2. On sent que Frankie gardait une oreille sur les tendances pop/rock qui explosaient en '66 des deux côtés de l'Atlantique. Cette année produisit des étincelles. (C'est ce dont on arrive pas à faire le deuil, moi je n'y parviens pas.

    1. Je pense qu'il ne faut SURTOUT pas en faire le deuil ;))
