Get On With Your Short Life

You keep saying that one day things could be fabulous,
If only you had the right shoes, new clothes, the dream team doing your hair.
Why do you have to waste time on your waistline when you could be having dinner with me?

Will you really be the winner If you're thinner? How can I make you see?

Get on with your short life,
Get on with this sweet precious time,
You know you're only dreaming
So why don't you wake up and get on
With your short life

You keep praying that some day things will be different
If you only had the right lips, killer hips,
A sun kissed permanent tan
But does it really matter if you're fatter
Than everybody else on the screen
It's more important to be truthful than just
Youthful on the cover of some magazine

 

Get on with your short life,
Get on with this sweet precious time,
You know you're only dreaming
So why don't you wake up and get on with
Your short life
