Thelma Houston - Short Life Lyrics




In the scheme of things
You live your life
And fight to get what you want
And if you just give in
You soon give out
'Cause happiness is what counts

Watch out for the best friend
Who tells you what to do
Beware of the leader
Who lives by his own rules
Watch out for the big mouth
Who always thinks he's right
Turn off all the bad stuff
'Cause it's a short life
A short life, yeah
A short life, hey, hey

Who's to say, what the perfect person should be?
And what's it matter
When everyone in the world has different dreams?

Some people know
Life is so precious
Some just say "oh"
And miss the message
Really is a short life (such a short life)
Better start to live right
'Cause it's a short life, yeah
It's a short life

You know in the end
It's you alone
To do, what you need to do
And if you don't think
You're worth a damn
Then no one else will come through

Watch out for the gossips
Who start wars with their lips
Beware of the cute ones
Whose brains are in their hips
Watch out for the bully
Who wins you with his might
Cut 'em loose baby
'Cause it's a short life
A short life, yeah
A short life, oh hey

Who's to say, what the perfect existence should be?
And what's it matter
When everyone in the world has different dreams?

Some people know
Life is so precious
Some just say "oh"
And miss the message
Really is a short life
Better start to live right
'Cause it's a short life, yeah
It's a short life, oh hey

Hey, hey yeah
Woo-hoo

Who's to say, what the perfect person should be?
And what's it matter
When all people grow up having different dreams?

Some people know
Life is so precious
Some just say "oh"
And miss the message
That it's a short life (baby, it's a short life)
Such a short life (baby, it's a short life)

A short life (baby, it's a short life)
A short life (baby, it's a short life)
Short life (baby, it's a short life)
Don't let it press you down (baby, it's a short life)
You better get it right (baby, it's a short life)
You better wake up and get it right, people (baby, it's a short life)
A short life (baby, it's a short life)
You only get a round once (baby, it's a short life)
Hey, you better get it right (baby, it's a short life)
A short life (baby, it's a short life)
