It's My Life

I ain’t got a whole lot of money – I don’t need that much
Long as I got my baby - And her sweet lovin’ touch

You won’t see me sportin’ – No high priced Haute Coture
But I’ll be stylin’ just the same – Of that, you can be sure

I don’t want to be no Doctor, Lawyer, or Indian Chief
That stuff’s too complicated & my time is much too brief

It’s my life & I’m all right - It’s my life & I’m all right
They may be pitchin’ me high & tight – But, it’s my life & I’m all right

I don’t drive no Maserati – Don’t need to get no where that fast
Just need something that’ll move along – When I step on the gas

I’d rather be cruisin’ with the top down – And my baby by my side
Than jammed inside some deathtrap – just waitin’ to collide

I’ll sing along with the radio – Right through a traffic jam
I don’t buy into the rat race – That’s just the way I am

It’s my life & I’m all right - It’s my life & I’m all right
They may be pitchin’ me high & tight – But, it’s my life & I’m all right

My boss is always complainin’ – About my ethic at work
I may not be in a full out sprint – But, I certainly don’t shirk

Just because I ain’t sweatin’ – Don’t mean I ain’t on the ball
When things are runnin’ smoothly – Makes it seem that way, that’s all

Aint gonna climb no corporate ladder – That path just don’t seem sound
Wastin’ time gettin’ to the top – Just to stand on shaky ground

It’s my life & I’m all right - It’s my life & I’m all right
They may be pitchin’ me high & tight – But, it’s my life & I’m all right
