lyrics

THE YOUNGER SON Life is sweet, life is good / And I’m lovin’ it like I should / Sights to savor, colors intense / Life is good, life is grand / I love trav’lin’ through the land / And I won’t slow down until I’ve seen it all / THE YOUNGER SON & THE YOUNG WOMAN Life is sweet, life is good / And I’m livin’ it like I should / Spicy flavors, salty new scents / Life is good, life is gold / Like the goods I buy, I’m sold / And I won’t slow down until I’ve got it all / Life is sweet / THE YOUNGER SON Well, I’m groovin’ with my new friends / Pushy dealers of delight / ‘Cause money’s for the spendin’ / And love is for the lendin’ / And everyday we’ve got, let’s make like sand and fly / From dune to dune, till stars get in your eyes / THE YOUNGER SON & THE YOUNG WOMAN Life is sweet, life is good, and I’m givin’ it all I should / Curried favor, smoky ascent / Not just good, life is great / So I’m gonna satiate / Every thirst and hunger till I’ve had my fill / Every thirst and hunger till I’ve had my fill / Life is sweet / THE TRADERS Sweet for those who set the rules / Sweet for those who pick the tune / THE YOUNG WOMAN & THE TRADERS Sweet for our spendhappy fool / Sweet to see him whoop and swoon / THE TRADERS But what about the low born scum who pay the dues? / Life too sweet can turn too bitter all too soon / THE YOUNGER SON Do you think I’ll get addicted? / THE YOUNG WOMAN Uh- huh / THE YOUNGER SON Well, I admit I’ve got that bent / THE YOUNG WOMAN Nah / The body’s for the stretchin’ / THE YOUNGER SON The body’s for the stretchin’ / THE YOUNG WOMAN And stars are for the catchin’ / THE YOUNGER SON Stars are for the catchin’ / THE YOUNGER SON & THE YOUNG WOMAN And everyday we’ve got to take the chance and fly / From moon to moon, hear life’s relentless cry / Life is hot, life is cool / When you’re one spendhappy fool / Sound the cheer, extravagance is here / THE TRADERS Life is fun, life is fresh / Filled with endless happiness / So we won’t slow down until we’ve tasted all / No, we won’t slow down until we’ve wasted all / Life is sweet, Life is sweet / THE YOUNG WOMAN & THE TRADERS Your life is sweet / THE YOUNGER SON Life is sweet
