Life is fine.


LIFE IS FINE

I went down to the river,
I set down on the bank.
I tried to think but couldn't,
So I jumped in and sank.
I came up once and hollered!
I came up twice and cried!
If that water hadn't a-been so cold
I might've sunk and died.
But it was cold in that water!
It was cold!

I took the elevator
Sixteen floors above the ground.
I thought about my baby
And thought I would jump down.
I stood there and I hollered!
I stood there and I cried!
If it hadn't a-been so high
I might've jumped and died.
But it was high up there!
It was high!

So since I'm still here livin',
I guess I will live on.
I could've died for love-
- But for livin' I was born
Though you may hear me holler,
And you may see me cry-
- I'll be dogged, sweet baby,
If you gonna see me die.

Life is fine! Fine as wine!
Life is fine!
