Good As It Gets



It's as good as it gets
don't have sweats
so it's gonna rain
don't complain
sit by the fire 
and drink champagne


It's as good as it gets
give up the frets
love  is everywhere
stop and stare
see those two kissing
is there some thing your missing?
get out there and find it
put yourself behind it

It's as good as it gets
hedge those bets
the sun will come out
then we'll all shout
and run all about
and
play in the sand
life's so grand

It's as good as it gets
dry those tears
wrap those fears
shift those gears
and
make life dance
now's your chance

It's as good as it gets
soon one forgets
so
just a few lines
like a nursery rhyme
not to heady
but get yourself ready
cause life's just fine
most of the time

It's as good as it gets
joy begets
so no regrets
