Thought of the day

I'd forgotten how often we saw Magritte

I'll lj-cut these lyrics so you don't have to read the whole thing, since if you have never seen Mel Brooks' film 'The Twelve Chairs', you don't care. ;)


Hope for the best
Expect the Worst
Some drink champagne
Some die of thirst
No way of knowing
Which way it's going
Hope for the best expect the worst

Hope for the best
Expect the worst
The world's a stage
We're unrehearsed
Some reach the top, friends
While others drop, friends
Hope for the best expect the worst

I knew a man who saved a fortune that was splendid
Then he died the day he planned to go and spend it
Shouting live while you're alive
No one will survive
Life is sorrow
There today and gone tomorrow
Live while you're alive
No one will survive
There's no guarantee

Hope for the best
Expect the worst
You could be Tolstoy
Or Patty Hearst
So take you're chances
There are no answers
Hope for the best expect the worst

I knew a man who saved a fortune that was splendid
Then he died the day he planned to go and spend it
Shouting live while you're alive
No one will survive
Life is funny
Stay alive and spend your money
Live while you're alive
No one will survive
There's no guarantee

Hope for the best
Expect the worst
The rich are blessed
The poor are cursed
That is a fact, friends
The deck is stacked, friends
Hope for the best expect the-

Even with a good beginning
It's not certain that you're winning
Even with the best of chances
They can kick you in your pantses
Look out for the
Watch out for the worst
Hey
  • all I know is oingo rhymes with boingo

    You worry too much, you make yourself sad
    You can't change fate, but don't feel so bad
    Enjoy it while you can, it's just like the weather
    So quit complaining, brother: no-one lives forever!

    Let's have a party, there's a full moon in the sky
    It's the hour of the wolf and I don't want to die
    I'm so happy dancing while the Grim Reaper cuts cuts cuts
    But he can't get me, I'm as clever as can be
    And I'm very quick, but don't forget
    We've only got so many tricks and no-one lives forever

    You think you've got it rough, what about your darling doggie?
    Ten short years, he's getting old and groggy
    I don't think it's very fair, cold, chop, low
    But it's all relative my friend 'cause no-one lives forever

    Let's have a party (etc.)

    No-one beats him at his game
    For very long, but just the same
    Who cares, there's no place safe to hide
    Nowhere to run, no time to cry
    So celebrate while you still can
    'Cause any second it may end
    And when it's all been said and done
    Better that you had some fun
    Instead of hiding in a shell
    Why make your life a living hell?
    So have a toast, and down the cup
    And drink to bones that turn to dust
    'Cause no-one, no-one, no-one, no-one,
    No-one lives forever!

      Same vein, different IV.
      *snicker* Thanks for reminding me of that, though.
