LIVE IT UP

you've got steel in your arms
lead in your ass
and tropical wood in your brain
you send your thoughts on a journey
with a one-way ticket
"no use" is your second name

being pitiful for yourself
it's not good for your health
you self-pitiful pitibull
do the mashed potatoe
don't be the mashed potatoe
break the rule to be the rule

take your helmet off
so the sun can shine much brighter
even wearing shades on soul and ska allnighter

why don't we laugh instead of talking
why don't we dance instead of walking
it's not written down
that we sing our songs in minor keys

live it up don't break it down
there's a rumor going 'round
as long as you move
no one will chain you finally

different positions are a thrill
so at night do what you will
but don't lay on your back all your life
you paid for this ball, and you've got balls
so let them have a ball with their wives

take your helmet off
so the sun can shine much brighter
even wearing shades on soul and ska allnighter

why don't we laugh instead of talking
why don't we dance instead of walking
it's not written down
that we sing our songs in minor keys

live it up don't break it down
there's a rumor going 'round
as long as you move
no one will chain you finally

why don't we laugh instead of talking
why don't we dance instead of walking
it's not written down
that we sing our songs in minor keys

live it up don't break it down
there's a rumor going 'round
as long as you move
no one will chain you finally

why don't we laugh instead of talking
why don't we dance instead of walking
it's not written down
that we sing our songs in minor keys

live it up don't break it down
there's a rumor going 'round
as long as you move
no one will chain you finally
