That's Life (Aretha's Version)


 

Yesterday morning, my Winamp played the song "That's Life" by Michael Buble. I never really paid attention to the lyrics until now. I found that the lyrics are so lifting and motivating. I then browsed for the singers who have sung this song, and I found out that The Greatest Singer of All Time, The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin ever recorded this song. I then downloaded it and listen to it all day long. The video below shows Aretha Franklin and Frank Valli singing "That's Life"



That's life
That's what the people say
You're up high in April,
Sittin' on the ground in May
But I believe I'm gonna change that tune
When I'm back on top, yeah, in June
I'll tell you that
That's life
It's funny as it may seem
Some people really get big kicks
from steppin' and walkin' on your dreams
But I'm not gonna let it get me down
Because this big ol' world ain't stop from spinnin' around

I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet
A pawn and a queen
I've been up, I've been down,
I've been over, I've been under
And I know one thing
Every time I see myself wholly flat on the face
This is what I do, I say get up ,
I say get up and get back in the race

That's life
And I'm not gonna deny it,
I really thought of quitting once in a while
But my heart wouldn't buy it
If I thought it was worth a single try
This what I do, ----------- (unclear)

I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet
A pawn and a queen
I've been up, I've been down,
I've been over, I've been under
And I know one thing
Every time I see myself wholly flat on the face
This is what I do, I say get up ,
I say get up and get back in the race

That's life
And I'm not gonna deny it,
I really thought of quitting once in a while
But my heart wouldn't buy it
If I thought it was worth a single try
This what I do, I'd just roll myself up in one of those big balls
And I died
