O' life you come with things to tick me off
with your lighting bolts of trouble
That strikes without warning, on my each step
O' boy I wonder if they did trouble

But it only makes me want to grab my gear
get a safety-belt to strap around me
So it can hold me together until it goes on by
O' life enjoy your laughing spree

Can you excuse my while I get my breastplate
for I know your not through yet
So let me put my helmet on, so to shield my head
to keep my mind so I won't forget

That with you I'll need my best pair of boots
to wade through each muddy trail
O' life give me what you've got, I'm ready to trot
for I do not intend to fail

So come on with your deep waters of problems
I'll just go rent me a raft or boat
So when you ticks me off, I'd be a good thing
though you have me by the throat

Now O' life I do understand this game so well
but let me share these words with you
I'm going to make it, so go on and dish
it out
this my soul, it will get through

So do try to rock my boat to overturn it
and I give you credit, but it's no way
Because, here comes wisdom, knocking at the door
and it always has something to say

First I will shake off those dusty doubts
I will not let you take my ground
But I will seek to make my days be
so to go with you a few more rounds

O' life even if it is raining on the outside
I can't let you dampen my soul
But will enjoy, the showers that falls from above
and the good I will forever hold

So what if you do bring a few off days
it doesn't mean I got to check out;
But ride it through,and paint a better picture
so I'd kill all kinds of doubt

There are tunes that's been printed on paper
that I may can't play at this time
But O'life know this, I am willing to learn
so don't look for me to resign

O' life go on and tick me off all you want
but let me take this time to smile
Let you and I shake hands, as we do make our way
to face each coming mile

Wisdom will open it's door once we do knock
it will help you to ask for grace
For it will be days, that can tick you off
but with it, it won't be hard to face
