lyrics

LIVIN’ WILL KILL YOU
© Bob Wright

C
Butter can kill you

and coffee can too

you shouldn’t be puttin’
G
no meat in your stew
C C7
seems like there ain’t nothin’
F Fm
left we can eat
G
when it’s livin’ will kill you
C
as sure as I breathe


C
sugar and cigarettes

top all the lists

you’re probably safe
G
if you’ve never been kissed
C C7
I’d go for a walk
F Fm
but it’s bad for my feet
G
yet livin’ will kill you
C
as sure as I breathe


(chorus)
F
AYE AYE AYE AYE
C
I don’t want to die
G
AYE AYE AYE AYE

but you don’t
C
get to heaven alive


C
whiskey and vodka

and rum and tequila

alone or together
G
will probably kill ya
C C7
don’t shake the hand
F Fm
of a friend with a sneeze
G
but livin’ will kill you
C
as sure as I breathe

C
now cancer and dancin’

with devils is bad

don’t swim after eating
G
and don’t get a tan
C C7
you can pray in the dark
F Fm
all alone on your knees
G
then livin will kill you
C
as sure as I breathe

(chorus)
F
AYE AYE AYE AYE
C
I don’t want to die
G
AYE AYE AYE AYE

but you don’t
C
get to heaven alive


C
strangely enough

they say wine is a savior

just one glass a day

G
ensures years of behavior
C C7
so lets drink a toast
F Fm
to the newly deceased
G
cause livin will kill you
C
as sure as I breathe



(chorus)
F
AYE AYE AYE AYE
C
I don’t want to die
G
AYE AYE AYE AYE

but you don’t
C
get to heaven alive

about

Bob Wright/ Harbortown New York, New York

He is a multi-instrumentalist, an award winning songwriter and Bob Wright songs are often mistaken for traditional songs because their immigrant roots run deep beneath the surface of America and back to the places they came from for nurturing and inspiration. They surface in a modern world, constructed with a modern sensibility and a comforting resonance with the past. ... more
