Thought of the day

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
