Sing your life Any fool can think up words that rhyme Many others do Why don't you? Do you want to?
Sing your life Walk right up to the microphone And name all the things you love All the things that you loathe Sing your life The things that you love And the things that you loathe Oh sing your life Oh sing your life
Sing your life, sing your life Others sang your life But now's your chance to shine And have the pleasure of Saying what you mean Have the pleasure of meaning what you sing Oh, make no mistake, my friend All of this will end So sing it now
All the things you love All the things you loathe Oh sing your life The things that you love And the things that you loathe Oh sing your Oh sing your
Sing your life, sing your life Don't leave it all unsaid Somewhere in the wasteland of your head Oh, head, oh Head Oh, head, oh And make no mistake, my friend Your pointless life will end
But before you go Can you look at the truth? You have a lovely singing voice A lovely singing voice And all of those Who sing on key They stole the notion From you and me
So sing your life Sing your life Sing your life Oh sing your... Oh sing your...
Sing your life Sing your life Sing your life Oh sing your...
Sing your life Sing your life
