I've found if you don't laugh with life
then I'd only laugh with at you;
So are we going to smile with it or do we cry
which is the best one to do

For each and every day it's at the door
and asking us, are you in there;
Now what reply will you give, to O' life
will you show it, that you care

Now although it's here it won't dress us
it won't put not on one shoe
And it will not even open the door
but will leave it up to you

Each day it knows what the weather I'd be
and rather if it will rain or shine;
O' life it never stops, but keeps moving on
so what should be in our minds

Seeing no pampering I'd do to make us accept
what awaits for us each day
And if it be a right choice, I'd join right in
for it hangs on what we say

Life says I am all around everywhere each day
look at the wind as it blows the trees
There's the sun shining down, from up above
so what does it want us to see

Can I not flap my wings and face the winds
and tell the heart, lets make our day
Will I let life fly by,and go on without me
by keep telling it to go away

It is easy to give up and accept defeat
don't need no help, for this move;
But where's the challenge, if there's no fun
and what did you really prove

There is a price that comes with this life
and it can be costly at times;
But if you feel in anyway that it's worth it
then you have won the mind

For low esteem won't bring one thing
but high hopes can climb any rope
So look life in the face and claim your place
for you've won the will to cope

So in whatever in life that comes and go
if it's pouring rain, so let it be
In whatever it is, we'll enjoy each one
now O' life come and smile with me
