Track Lyrics

AIN'T LIFE A BITCH
VERSE 1
WHOEVER SAID THE BEST THINGS ARE FREE
LET ME TELL YOU IT DON'T COME EASY
LIFE'S A GAME BUT I STILL BELIEVE
YOU HAVE TO TAKE IT SERIOUSLY
BRIDGE
THE WORLD TELLS SO MANY LIES
THEY SAY MONEY TALKS HUH BUT LISTEN TO ME
CHORUS
YOU GOTTA TAKE CONTROL
AND YOU CAN NEVER STOP
YOU GOTTA KEEP ON CLIMBING TILL YOU REACH THE TOP
NEVER GIVING UP
AIN'T LIFE A BITCH
YOU GOTTA KEEP ON GOING TILL YOU STRIKE IT RICH
VERSE 2
DON'T LET THEM TELL YA YOU AIN'T GOT A SOUL
ONLY SINNERS CAST THE FIRST STONE
AND EVEN IF THE SIDEWALK AIN'T GOLD
ANYONE CAN BE BOUGHT AND SOLD
BRIDGE
THE WORLD TELLS SO MANY LIES
THEY SAY MONEY TALKS HUH BUT LISTEN TO ME
CHORUS
YOU GOTTA TAKE CONTROL
AND YOU CAN NEVER STOP
YOU GOTTA KEEP ON CLIMBING TILL YOU REACH THE TOP
NEVER GIVING UP
AIN'T LIFE A BITCH
YOU GOTTA KEEP ON GOING TILL YOU STRIKE IT RICH
VERSE 3
DON'T LET THEM TELL YA YOU AIN'T GOT A SOUL
ONLY SINNERS CAST THE FIRST STONE
LIFE'S A GAME BUT I STILL BELIEVE
YOU HAVE TO TAKE IT SERIOUSLY
BRIDGE
THE WORLD TELLS SO MANY LIES
THEY SAY MONEY TALKS HUH BUT LISTEN TO ME
CHORUS
YOU GOTTA TAKE CONTROL
AND YOU CAN NEVER STOP
YOU GOTTA KEEP ON CLIMBING TILL YOU REACH THE TOP
NEVER GIVING UP
AIN'T LIFE A BITCH
YOU GOTTA KEEP ON GOING TILL YOU STRIKE IT RICH
CHORUS
YOU GOTTA TAKE CONTROL
AND YOU CAN NEVER STOP
YOU GOTTA KEEP ON CLIMBING TILL YOU REACH THE TOP
NEVER GIVING UP
AIN'T LIFE A BITCH
YOU GOTTA KEEP ON GOING TILL YOU STRIKE IT RICH
CHORUS
YOU GOTTA TAKE CONTROL
AND YOU CAN NEVER STOP
YOU GOTTA KEEP ON CLIMBING TILL YOU REACH THE TOP
NEVER GIVING UP
AIN'T LIFE A BITCH
YOU GOTTA KEEP ON GOING TILL YOU STRIKE IT RICH
YOU GOTTA TAKE CONTROL

CHORUS REPEAT TO FADE
