    friend of mine just had a real bad time.
    You see, his life was shattered and he lost his mind.
    His girl ran off along with his best friend,
    And through emotional stress he brought his life to an end.
    It was such a tragedy,
    But that's the way it's got to be.
    Life goes on.

    Life goes on.
    It happens ev'ry day.
    So appreciate what you got
    Before it's taken away.
    Life will hit you
    When you're unprepared,
    So be grateful and take all
    That you can while you're there.
    Get that frown off your head,
    'Cause you're a long time dead.
    Life goes on and on and on.
    Life goes on and on and on.

    No use runnin' 'round lookin' scared,
    Life could get you when you're unaware.
    One day it's gonna come, so you better accept it.
    Life will hit you when you least expect it.
    And one day when you are gone,
    You know that life will still go on.
    But no one'll care if you've been good, bad, right or wrong.
    Life will still go on.

    My bank went broke and my well ran dry.
    It was almost enough to contemplate suicide.
    I turned on the gas, but I soon realized
    I hadn't settled my bill so they cut off my supply.
    No matter how I try, it seems I'm too young to die.
    Life goes on and on and on.
    Life goes on and on and on.

    Tornado, cyclone and hurricane
    Can batter the houses with the thunder and rain.
    Blizzards can blow; the waves hit the shore,
    But the people recover and come back for more.
    Somehow the people fight back, even the future looks black.
    Life goes on and on and on.
    Life goes on and on and on.
