So I'm down and so I'm out...but so are many others;
So I feel like tryin' to hide my head beneath these covers,
Life is like the seasons - after winter comes the spring.
So I'll keep this smile awhile, and see what tomorrow brings
I've been told and I believe that life is meant for livin';
And even when my chips are low, there's still some left for givin'.
I've been many places, maybe not as far as you;
So I think I'll stay awhile and see if some dreams come true.
There isn't much that I have learned
Through all my foolish years
Life keeps runnin' on in cycles -
First there's laughter, then those tears.
But I'll keep my head up high, although I'm kinda tired;
My gal just up and left last week; Friday, I got fired.
You know it's almost funny, but things can't get worse than now,
So I'll keep on tryin' to sing... but please, just don't ask me how.
