Sleeping, way to split night from day
Talking, you do when you try to say
And loving is a precious commodity

Ooh facts of life
Ooh facts of life yeah

All the world’s a stage
And pleasure’s the same as rage
We all want to beat the cage
Be free for our seventh age

Ooh facts of life
Ooh facts of life
And you know however hard I try
I can’t seem to change the way my own wood grain lies
Maybe you change it for me
You sound surprised, you sound surprised …(CHORUS)

Solving a cure for the common cold
And keeping the maniacs off the road
Saving a space for our mortal souls


And if you’re coping with sods law
Or dining with Soft Mick
Drawing the long straw
Just shows you don’t miss a trick

Sex, of course is a fact of life
Money, yeah is a fact of life
Drugs, Fags & Booze there a fact of life
Boys that do girls that do boys that do girls that is a fact of life
Death isn’t fiction it’s a fact of life
Pale politicians opposed to proper heroes is a fact of life
Saying too much and changing very little
Mild facsination over global descacration is a fact of life
Glossy magazines filled with fuckin nothing
Media teams lead us to what we think and read us it’s a fact of life
Love, Truth & Music is my facts of life…X 2
