    Lyrics

    That's life, that's what people say
    You're riding high in April
    Sitting on the ground in May
    But I believe I'm gonna change that tune
    When I'm back on top, yeah in June

    I tell you that's life and as funny as it may seem
    Some people really get big kicks
    From stepping and walking on your dreams
    But I'm not gonna let it get me down
    Because this big world of ours is going to keep spinnin' around

    I've been a puppet, pauper, pirate
    Poet, pawn and a queen
    I've been up, I've been down
    I've been over, I've been out
    And I learned one thing
    That every time I see myself, fallin' flat on my face
    This is what I do,
    Say get up girl, oh get up girl, oh get back in the race

    Oh that's life
    I'm gonna deny it
    I really thought of quitting once or twice
    But my heart wouldn't buy it
    And if I thought it was worth one single try
    This is what I'd do
    I'd call American Airlines, get dead on a jet and I'd fly

    I've been a puppet, pauper, pirate
    Poet, pawn and a queen
    I've been up, I've been down
    I've been over, I've been out
    And I learned one thing
    That every time I see myself, fallin' flat on my face
    This is what I do,
    Say get up girl, oh, listen to yourself, oh, get back up in the race

    Oh, that's life
    And I'm gonna deny it
    I really, really thought of quitting once or twice
    But my heart just wouldn't buy it
    And if I thought it was worth a single try
    I'd just roll myself up in one of those big balls
    And I'd lay right down and I'd ahh
