Karrin allyson - Long as you're living

Forgive me if I seem to preach
But there is something that I want to say
A message that I hope will reach
People who are throwin' life away
I call it my philosophy
That is why I pass it on to you
Because it works so well for me
It helps me get away from strife
Hope you listen carefully
They say the truth will make you free
And that's the way you wanna be
'Cause, brother, this is your life

As long as you're livin'
Always remember
Time is for spendin'
But there's an endin'
While you are sleepin'
Life is a-creepin'
Wake up and taste it
Foolish to waste it
Sample and savor
All of life's flavor
As long as you're livin'

As long as you're livin'
Always remember
Folks who are lazy
Are playin' crazy
You better keep movin'
Keep on improvin'
You won't be hurried
After you're buried
Live every minute
And put yourself in it
As long as you're livin'


Ooh
Ah, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ba, ba, ba, buh beh
Ba, bu, bu beh, da, doo deh babu, bu bu beeh
Ba, ba, ba, buh beh
Ba, ba, ba, booh, booh, booh, booh, beh
Sa ba, ba, ba, buh beh
Ba, ba, ba, buh, buh, buh
Sa ba, ba, ba, buh beh
Ba, ba, ba, buh, buh, buh
Da, dooh, buh, leh duh
Ba, ba, ba, buh, buh, buh ba bu ba lee lee
Sa ba, ba, ba, buh beh, doh, uh

As long as you're livin'
Always remember
You'll never beat life
Don't try to cheat life
Sisters and brothers
Do unto others
Love's for enjoyin'
Hate's for destroyin'
Never forget it
Or you'll regret it
As long as you're livin'

Forgive me if I seem to preach
But there is something that I have to say
A message that I hope will reach
People who are throwin' life away
I call it my philosophy
That is why I pass it on to you
Because it works so well for me
It helps me get away from strife
Hope you listen carefully
They say the truth will make you free
And that's the way you wanna be
'Cause, sister, this is your life
