I Like Life lyrics




I Like Life

Ghost of Christmas Present:
Ebenezer Scrooge
The sins of man are huge
A neverending symphony
Of villainy and infamy
Duplicity, deceit, and subtefuge
And no one's worse than Ebenezer Scrooge
Though man's a handy candidate for Hell
I must admit life sometimes has it's brighter side as well

I like life
Life likes me
Life and I fairly fully agree
Life is fine
Life is good
'Specially mine, which is just as it should be
I like pouring the wine and why not?
Life's a pleasure that I deny not

I like life
Here and now
Life and I made a mutual vow
'Till I die
Life and I
We'll both try to be better somehow
And if life were a woman
She would be my wife

Scrooge
Why?

Ghost of Christmas Present
Why?
Because I like life!

Scrooge
That's all very well for you
But I hate life

Ghost of Christmas Present
Nonsense man!
Why?

Scrooge
Because life hates me, that's why!

Ghost of Christmas Present
Oh, Scrooge, you're an even bigger fool than I took you for!
You've had over sixty years on this planet
And during your long, miserable, miserly, selfish existence
You haven't even learned how to live
Now listen to me

I like life
Well, go on

Scrooge
I like life

Ghost of Christmas Present
That's better!
Life likes me

Scrooge
Life likes me

Ghost of Christmas Present
Good, good
I make life a perpetual spree

Scrooge
A perpetual spree

Ghost of Christmas Present
Eating food

Scrooge
Drinking wine

Ghost of Christmas Present
Thinking who'd like the privelege to dine me

Scrooge
I like drinking the drink I'm drinking

Ghost of Christmas Present
That's better, Scrooge!
And I like thinking the thoughts I'm thinking

I like songs
I like dance
I hear music and I'm in a trance

Scrooge
Tra-la-la

Ghost of Christmas Present
Oom-pah-pah

Ghost of Christmas Present and Scrooge
Chances are we shall get up and prance

Ghost of Christmas Present
Where there's music and laughter
Happiness is rife

Scrooge
Why?

Ghost of Christmas Present
Why?
Because I like life!

Ghost of Christmas Present and Scrooge
Where there's music and laughter
Happiness is rife
Why?
Because I like life!

Ghost of Christmas Present
Come on, Scrooge, we're going visiting
You're in for a few surprises

Drinking life
That's the thing
Makes a man want to suddenly sing
Sing and dance
And perchance
Seeing life from a different stance
When you learn how to live it
Life is free of strife
That is why I like life!

That's the secret of living

Scrooge
Any man can fly!

Ghost of Christmas Present
Why?
Because I like life!
