This Is the Life

About This Is the Life

"This Is the Life" is a song by Scottish singer-songwriter Amy Macdonald from her 2007 album of the same name. It was released on 10 December 2007 in the United Kingdom, and in April 2008 in most European countries, becoming a major hit worldwide. It has so far been Macdonald's most successful single, topping eight music charts and reaching the top ten on nine other charts around the world. Conversely, the song did not match the success of "Mr Rock & Roll" in the United Kingdom, stalling at number 28 on the UK Singles Chart and number 17 in her native Scotland. The music video consists of pictures of Macdonald and her friends' night out. The song was used in a 2010 advert for the Fiat 500 shown across Europe. It was also used in the early 2011 as an advert in Norway and re-entered the chart directly at number one. It is also used as an opening theme for a Polish television series True Law. The track was also released in the US on a vinyl 45 rpm single (Decca UCGR-00199-1) with unique picture sleeve, backed with "Let's Start a Band."

Oh, the wind whistles down
The cold dark street tonight
And the people, they were dancing
To the music vibe

And the boys chase the girls with curls in their hair
While the shy tormented youth sit way over there
And the songs get louder each one better than before

And you're singing the songs thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go, where you gonna go, where you gonna sleep tonight?
And you're singing the songs thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go, where you gonna go, where you gonna sleep tonight?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

So you're heading down the road in your taxi for four
And you're waiting outside Jimmy's front door
But nobody's in and nobody's home 'til 4
So you're sitting there with nothing to do
Talking about Robert Riger and his motley crew
And where you gonna go, where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you're singing the songs thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go, where you gonna go, where you gonna sleep tonight?
And you're singing the songs thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go, where you gonna go, where you gonna sleep tonight?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you're singing the songs thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go, where you gonna go, where you gonna sleep tonight?
And you're singing the songs thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go, where you gonna go, where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you're singing the songs thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go, where you gonna go, where you gonna sleep tonight?
And you're singing the songs thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go, where you gonna go, where you gonna sleep tonight?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?
