After last night’s conversation…

Before I go back home today, wanted to post this too. Have been thinking of bits and pieces of this song since morning. Finally, searched for the lyrics, and am putting them here. It was sung by Frank Sinatra.

Was talking with Gourav last night. Maybe that’s why this song’s been in my head.

This is for you…

Hey! “That’s Life!”

That’s life, that’s what people say.

You’re riding’ high in April,

Shot down in May.

But I know I’m gonna change that tune,

When I’m back on top in June.


That’s life, funny as it seems.

Some people get their kicks,

Steppin’ on dreams;

But I don’t let it get me down,

‘Cause this ol’ word keeps getting around.


I’ve been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate,

A poet, a pawn and a king.

I’ve been up and down and over and out

And I know one thing:

Each time I find myself flat on my face,

I pick myself up and get back in the race.


That’s life, I can’t deny it,

I thought of quitting,

But my heart just won’t buy it.

If I didn’t think it was worth a try,

I’d roll myself up in a big ball and die.
