lyrics

Hay is for the horses/ And Mr Ed when he says hi
The fever and the cattle/ And haunted wagon rides
Fun is for Chucky Cheese/ Cindy Lauper and freaks
Winning the lottery/ Unlimited cookies

But we all know that the sunshine shines for flowers
And the haters say that the flowers are for cowards
but life is for you and me darlin'
Yeah life is for you and me darlin'

Cool is for James Dean/ Rock and roll and the north pole
Smokin' cigarettes and wearin' jeans with holes
Dreams are for little league/ Bed time and getting high
Martin Luther King/ The apple of my eye

But we all know that the sunshine shines for flowers
And the haters say that the flowers are for cowards
but life is for you and me darlin'
Yeah life is for you and me darlin'

Space is for spacing out/ Feng Shui and Chi
Aliens and Einsten/ And romantic philosophies
Stars are for the big screen/ Shining up above the sea
Stars are what I see/ When you're gazing back at me

But we all know that the sunshine shines for flowers
And the haters say that the flowers are for cowards
but life is for you and me darlin'
Yeah life is for you and me darlin'

So if hay is for the horses/ Mr Ed when he says hi
The fever the cattle/ Haunted wagon rides
And if all that stuff is for all that stuff/ What's there left for us?
All we get is life/ So choose your life and you'll be alright!
