Life Is Hard

Timbuk 3 Buy this song

Betty's in a wet T-shirt, feeling foolish and vain
 Looking like some housecat that got caught out in the rain
 Staring into the mirror at this less-than-pretty picture  Feeling ten years older now, and fifty bucks richer 

Life is hard, can't buy happiness no matter what you do
Can't get to heaven on roller skates -- can't take a taxi cab to Timbuktu 

Paul was a poor little rich boy -- he never had to cry
 Whenever he complained of aches and pains the doctors would drop by
Now he goes to parties with the prettiest girls in town
They get paid five hundred dollars just to kick him when he's down

 After he stiffed a waitress, and ran out on his tab
Big Mac had a heart attack in the back of a Yellow Cab
By the time the sound of the siren said the ambulance was coming 
His heart had stopped beating, but the meter was still running

Ain't no escaping when the rent comes due
