Life’s A Funny Proposition After All.

(By George M. Cohan)

Did you ever sit and ponder,
Sit and wonder, sit and think,
Why we’re here and what this life is all about?
It’s a problem that has driven
Many brainy men to drink,
It’s the weirdest thing they’ve tried to figure out.
About a thousand diff’rent theories
All the scientists can show,
But never yet have proved a reason why
With all we’ve thought
And all we’re taught,
Why all we seem to know
Is we’re born and live a while and then we die.

Life’s a very funny proposition after all,
Imagination, jealousy, hypocrisy and all.
Three meals a day, a whole lot to say;
When you haven’t got the coin you’re always in the way.
Ev’rybody’s fighting as we wend our way along,
Ev’ry fellow claims the other fellow’s in the wrong;
Hurried and worried until we’re buried and there’s no curtain call.
Life’s a very funny proposition after all.

When all things are coming easy, and when luck is with a man,
Why then life to him is sunshine ev’rywhere;
Then the fates blow rather breezy and they quite upset a plan,
Then he’ll cry that life’s a burden hard to bear.
Though today may be a day of smiles, tomorrow’s still in doubt,
And what brings me joy, may bring you care and woe;
We’re born to die, but don’t know why, or what it’s all about,
And the more we try to learn the less we know.

Life’s a very funny proposition, you can bet,
And no one’s ever solved the problem properly as yet.
Young for a day, then old and gray;
Like the rose that buds and blooms and fades and falls away,
Losing health to gain our wealth as through this dream we tour.
Ev’rything’s a guess and nothing’s absolutely sure;
Battles exciting and fates we’re fighting until the curtain falls.
Life’s a very funny proposition after all.
