Oh, life is so peculiar,
You get so wet in the rain,
You get so warm in the sunshine,
It doesn't pay to complain!

When I get up each mornin',
There's nothin' to breathe but aor!
When I look in the mirroe,
There's nothin' to comb but hair!
When I sit down to breakfast,
There's nothin' to eat but food!
Life is so peculiar
But you can't stay home and brood!

Yes, life is so peculiar,
A fork belongs with a knife;
Corned beef is lost without cabbage,
A husband should have a wife.
Life is peculiar,
But as everybody says,
"That's life!".  (that's life!)

Oh, life is so peculiar,
The desert's only got sand!
The oceans's only got water,
You never know where you stand!

When I get out to dinner,
There's nothin' to wear but clothes!
Whenever I get sleepy,
There's nothin' to do but doze!
Whenever I get thirsty,
There's nothin' to do but drink!
Life is so peculiar
That it makes you stop and think!

Yes, life is so peculiar,
It's so peculiar,
A fork belongs with a knife;  (a fork belongs with a knife)
Corned beef is lost without cabbage,
A husband should have a wife.
Kife is so peculiar,
But as everbody says,
"That's life!".
That's right!
