That's the Life
by Randy Newman



Bright lights, big city That's where we gotta go
Where the food is great and the bugs are so pretty
I'd like to get my arms around a hundred or so
I'd hug 'em, squeeze 'em, hold 'em tight
Sleep all day, dance all night the bright lights and the big city
That's the life for me, yeah That's the life for

You little maggot
Have you never seen the moon
Gliding 'cross the western sky
A dead oak tree by the waterside
Putrid vapors rising

That sounds lovely, dear. I'm sure we all agree
But I prefer the sunshine
A little park right in the center of the town
Flowers everywhere, children all around me
I'd love it!
Landing on a baby's cheek so warm
It's wonderful

Wonderful

That's the life for me
That's the life for me
That's the life, that's the life for me

Elegant conversation

Bright lights, big city

An elevated point of view

That's where I'd go

Intellectual stimulation

Yeah, maybe for you.

And someone you love to share it with you

It would be wonderful, wonderful
That's the life for me

That's the life for me

You call that a life?

That's the life for me

It's no pile of dirt

That's the life
That's the life
That's the life
That's the life for

That's the life for me

That's the life for me

That's the life for me

That's the life for me

That's the life

That's the life
That's the life
That's the life for me!
