Life Is Sweet

It's a pity, It's a crying shame
He pulled you down again
How painful it must be
To bruise so easily... inside
It's a pity, it's a downright crime
It happens all the time
You wanna stay little daddy's girl
You wanna hide from the vicious world... outside

Don't cry, you know the tears will do no good
So dry your eyes
Your daddy, he's the iron man
Battleship wrecked on dry land
Your mamma, she's a bitter bride
She'll never be satisfied
You know, and that's not right

But don't cry, you know the tears will do no good
So dry your eyes
They told you life is hard
Misery from the start, it's dull
It's slow, it's painful
But I tell you life is sweet
In spite of the misery
There's so much more, be grateful

Well, who do you believe
Who will you listen to, who will it be
Because it's high time that you decide
In your own mind

I've tried to comfort you
I tried to tell you to be patient
That they are blind and they can't see
Fortune gonna come one day
Then all gonna fade away
Your daddy the war machine
And your momma the long and suffering
Prisoner of what she can not see

For they told you life is hard
Misery from the start, it's dull,
It's slow, it's painful
But I tell you life is sweet
In spite of the misery
There's so much more, be grateful
So who will you believe
Who will you listen to
Who will it be
Because it's high time that you decide
It's time to make up your own
Your own state of mind

They told you life is long
Be thankful when it's done
Don't ask for more, be grateful
But I tell you life is short
Be thankful, because before you know it
It will be over
Because life is sweet
Life is all so very short
Life is sweet
And life is all so very short
Life is sweet
Life is sweet

    Quoting DancingDom:
    I am sneaking in a male voice with a duet as a suggestion:

    Blueberry Hill - Bruce Cockburn & Margo Timmins
Blueberry Hill was great, thank You.

    Quoting ina_scent:
    I really enjoy that you are collecting these offerings ~M

    Maybe add this to the list: "Snow Queen" by The City
    https://edcyphers.com/2015/09/30/carole-kings-lost-album-and-band/

    You may have heard The City LP, often referred to as Carole King’s Lost Album–and Band

    I just now discovered this while following links for Danny Korchmar. Korchmar's written tunes for tons of people and a member of The Flying Machine, James'Taylor's first band. And he plays guitar in The City joined by Carlo King and the bassist who Carol married later.

    This is unlike any Carol King I've ever heard.
I just listened to Snow Queen and it was fantastic. Thanks for the tip .
