What song shouts live it up?

Recommended Posts

Here is one that, quite literally, answers your question.

Live It Up - Blondie

"Blondie Live It Up lyrics"

Your old lover's lying in the gutter

He used to be such an all night strutter

"Oh, my heart," I heard him mutter

"Oh, my dear, it seems to flutter"

Ah, ah

It's so hard to say "No"

When the deck is stacked to only go slow

It's easy sweet to live it up

An easy street when you've had enough

Ah, ah

Darkened night, splashing light

Soft and white and so polite

Let him in, beneath the rim

Beneath the skin, your next of kin

Cleansing fire, funeral pyre

Broken wire grown inside her

Secret hush, swollen rush

It's soft and plush, it's so plush

You know it's so passe

To sleep without you every day

So easy to do your stuff

So easy to live it up

Ah, ah

Here's another:

LET'S LIVE FOR TODAY

Grass Roots

When I think of all the worries people seem to find

And how they're in a hurry to complicate their mind

By chasing after money and dreams that can't come true

I'm glad that we are different, we've better things to do

May others plan their future, I'm busy lovin' you (1-2-3-4)

Sha-la-la-la-la-la, live for today

Sha-la-la-la-la-la, live for today

And don't worry 'bout tomorrow, hey, hey, hey

Sha-la-la-la-la-la, live for today

Live for today

We were never meant to worry the way that people do

And I don't need to hurry as long as I'm with you

We'll take it nice and easy and use my simple plan

You'll be my lovin' woman, I'll be your lovin' man

We'll take the most from living, have pleasure while we can (2-3-4)

Sha-la-la-la-la-la, live for today

Sha-la-la-la-la-la, live for today

And don't worry 'bout tomorrow, hey, hey, hey

Sha-la-la-la-la-la, live for today

Live for today

Baby, I need to feel you inside of me

I got to feel you deep inside of me

Baby please come close to me

I got to have you now, please, please, please

Gimme some-a lovin', gimme some-a lovin'

Gimme some-a lovin', gimme some-a lovin'

Baby gimme some-a lovin'

Gimme some-a lovin, I need all your lovin'

Gimme some-a lovin, I need all your lovin'

Give me some love, now

I need all your lovin'

Sha la la la la la

Sha-la-la-la-la-la, live for today

Sha-la-la-la-la-la, live for today

And don't worry 'bout tomorrow, hey, hey, hey

Sha-la-la-la-la-la, live for today.

While not quite Rock, it's not exactly Country, and it's all about...Life!

Artist/Band: Carpenter Mary Chapin

Lyrics for Song: I Take My Chances

Lyrics for Album: Come On, Come On

I took a walk in the rain one day on the wrong side of the tracks

I stood on the rails till I saw that train

Just to see how my heart would react

Now some people say that you shouldn't tempt fate

And for them I would not disagree

But I never learned nothing from playing it safe

I say fate should not tempt me

I take my chances, I don't mind working without a net

I take my chances, I take my chances every chance I get

I sat alone in the dark one night, tuning in by remote

I found a preacher who spoke of the light but there was brimstone in his throat

He'd show me the way according to him in return for my personal check

I flipped my channel back to CNN and I lit another cigarette

I take my chances, forgiveness doesn't come with a debt

I take my chances, I take my chances every chance I get

I've crossed lines of words and wire and both have cut me deep

I've been frozen out and I've been on fire and the tears are mine to weep

Now I can cry until I laugh and laugh until I cry

So cut the deck right in half, I'll play from either side

I take my chances, I pay my dollar and I place my bet

I take my chances, I take my chances every chance I get

I take my chances, I don't cling to remorse or regret

I take my chances, I take my chances every chance I get

I take my chances

I take my chances :thumbsup:

Is That All There Is? - Peggy Lee

SPOKEN:

I remember when I was a very little girl, our house caught on fire.

I'll never forget the look on my father's face as he gathered me up

in his arms and raced through the burning building out to the pavement.

I stood there shivering in my pajamas and watched the whole world go up in flames.

And when it was all over I said to myself, "Is that all there is to a fire"

SUNG:

Is that all there is, is that all there is

If that's all there is my friends, then let's keep dancing

Let's break out the booze and have a ball

If that's all there is

SPOKEN:

And when I was 12 years old, my father took me to a circus, the greatest show on earth.

There were clowns and elephants and dancing bears.

And a beautiful lady in pink tights flew high above our heads.

And so I sat there watching the marvelous spectacle.

I had the feeling that something was missing.

I don't know what, but when it was over,

I said to myself, "is that all there is to a circus?

SUNG:

Is that all there is, is that all there is

If that's all there is my friends, then let's keep dancing

Let's break out the booze and have a ball

If that's all there is

SPOKEN:

Then I fell in love, head over heels in love, with the most wonderful boy in the world.

We would take long walks by the river or just sit for hours gazing into each other's eyes.

We were so very much in love.

Then one day he went away and I thought I'd die, but I didn't,

and when I didn't I said to myself, "is that all there is to love?"

SUNG:

Is that all there is, is that all there is

If that's all there is my friends, then let's keep dancing

Let's break out the booze and have a ball

If that's all

SPOKEN:

I know what you must be saying to yourselves,

if that's the way she feels about it why doesn't she just end it all?

Oh, no, not me. I'm in no hurry for that final disappointment,

for I know just as well as I'm standing here talking to you,

when that final moment comes and I'm breathing my lst breath, I'll be saying to myself

SUNG:

Is that all there is, is that all there is

If that's all there is my friends, then let's keep dancing

Let's break out the booze and have a ball

If that's all

Well, the nights begun and you want some fun

Do you think youre gonna find it (think youre gonna find it)

Don't sit there broken hearted (sit there broken hearted)

Call all your friends in the neighborhood

And get the party started (get the party started)

Don't let 'em tell you that theres too much noise

They're too old to really understand

You'll still get rowdy with the girls and boys

'cause its time for you to take a stand, yeah, yeah

Shout it, shout it, shout it out loud

Shout it, shout it, shout it out loud

Shout it, shout it, shout it out loud

Ken, I was thinking of that song straight away, but not being a huge KISS fan, I could not recall the name. I knew, though, that a certified member of the KISS Army would know. Carry on!

Sex and drugs and rock and roll

Is all my brain and body need

Sex and drugs and rock and roll

Are very good indeed

Keep your silly ways or throw them out the window

The wisdom of your ways, I've been there and I know

Lots of other ways, what a jolly bad show

If all you ever do is business you don't like

Sex and drugs and rock and roll

Sex and drugs and rock and roll

Sex and drugs and rock and roll

Is very good indeed

Every bit of clothing ought to make you pretty

You can cut the clothing, grey is such a pity

I should wear the clothing of Mr. Walter Mitty

See my tailor, he's called Simon, I know it's going to fit

Here's a little piece of advice

You're quite welcome it is free

Don't do nothing that is cut price

You know what that'll make you be

They will try their tricky device

Trap you with the ordinary

Get your teeth into a small slice

The cake of liberty

Sex and drugs and rock and roll

Sex and drugs and rock and roll

Sex and drugs and rock and roll

Sex and drugs and rock and roll

Sex and drugs and rock and roll

Sex and drugs and rock and roll

Sex and drugs and rock and roll

Sex and drugs and rock and roll

Sex, drugs, rock, roll

Sex, drugs, rock, roll
