In every other song that I've heard lately  
Some fellow gets shot  
And his baby and his best friend both die with him  
As likely as not  
In half of the other songs  
Some cat's crying or ready to die  
We've lost most of our happy people  
And I'm wondering why.     

Let's think about living  
Let's think about loving  
Let's think about the whoopin' 
And hoppin' and boppin' and the lovie, lovie  dovin'  
Let's forget about the whinin' and the cryin'  
And the shooting and the dying  
And the fellow with a switchblade knife  
Let's think about living  
Let's think about life.    

We lost old Marty Robbins  
Down in old El Paso a little while back  
And now Miss Patti Page or one of them  
Is a-wearing black  
And Cathy's Clown has Don and Phil  
Where they feel like a-they could die  
If we keep on a-losin' our singers like that  
I'll be the only one you can buy'.
