    Lyrics

    People are queer, they're always crowing, scrambling and rushing about
    Why don't they stop someday, address themselves this way?
    Why are we here? Where are we going? It's time that we found out
    We're not here to stay; we're on a short holiday

    Life is just a bowl of cherries
    Don't take it serious; it's too mysterious
    You work, you save, you worry so
    But you can't take your dough when you go, go, go

    So keep repeating it's the berries
    The strongest oak must fall
    The sweet things in life, to you were just loaned
    So how can you lose what you've never owned?
    Life is just a bowl of cherries
    So live and laugh at it all

    Life is just a bowl of cherries
    Don't take it serious; it's too mysterious
    At eight each morning I have got a date
    To take my plunge 'round the Empire State
    You'll admit it's not the berries
    In a building that's so tall
    There's a guy in the show, the girls love to kiss
    Get thousands a week just for crooning like this
    Life is just a bowl of . . . aw, nuts!
    So live and laugh at it all!
