Live your life, love your wife,
carve your heart out with a knife.
Look the devil in the eye.
Say, “We are not afraid to die.”
Say your prayers all day long.
Put your prayers into a song.
Sing your song out on the street.
Find a drummer, add a beat.
Remember what your parents taught you.
Do the things that they said not to.
You crash and burn. You live and learn.
This is life and it’s our turn.
If you’re not growing, then you’re dying.
We’re so happy that we’re crying
tears of joy. Girls and boys,
we are all just misfit toys.
Remember that our lives are now,
today, this moment. Try somehow
to live your life, to love your wife,
to carve your heart out with a knife.
