Song Lyric Sunday 5

Weird Al
This is the life!

This week’s theme for Helen Espinosa’s  Song Lyric Sunday is “songs that make us happy”. Oh, yay! I have been waiting for the perfect chance to use this one! The video link’s in the song title. From his 1985 Dare to be Stupid album, Weird Al Yankovic’s parody of 1920’s music:

“This Is The Life”
by Weird Al Yankovic

Lyrics from A to Z Lyrics

I eat filet mignon seven times a day
My bathtub’s filled with Perrier
What can I say
This is the life
I buy a dozen cars when I’m in the mood
I hire somebody to chew my food
I’m an upwardly mobile dude
This is the life
They say that money corrupts you
But I can’t really tell
I got the whole world at my feet
And I think it’s pretty swell
I got women lined up outside my door
They’ve been waitin’ there since the week before
Who could ask for more
This is the life
You’re dead for a real long time
You just can’t prevent it
So if money can’t buy happiness
I guess I’ll have to rent it
Yeah, every day I make the front page news
No time to pay my dues
I got a million pairs of shoes
This is the life

 

I got a solid gold Cadillac
I make a fortune while I sleep
You can tell I’m a living legend
Not some ordinary creep

No way, I’m the boss, the big cheese
Yeah, I got this town on its knobby little knees
And I can do just what I please
This is the life

That’s right, I’m the king, number one
I buy monographed Kleenex by the ton
I pay the bills, I call the shots
I grease the palms, I buy the yachts

One thing I can guarantee
The best things in life, they sure ain’t free
It’s such a thrill just to be me
This is the life
Waah, this is the life
