LIFE IS FOR LIVIN' (Jimmy Van Heusen (m) Sammy Cahn (l) ) as recorded by Peggy Lee with Orchestra conducted by Jack Marshall 1958 Life is for living, My pretties! Love is for giving, So give in kiddies! Those headlines cannot hurt you If they can disconcert you! Don't have a thought that's negative, Love's for living and life's to live! Lips are for kissing, My rabbits! If you've been missing The best of habits, Go find yourself a smoocher And you'll enjoy the future. Just fall in love and start to live, Love's for living and life's to live! Have a ball, What's the diff' if you goof? Give your all, Before this silly old, willy-nilly old world goes poof! It's worth repeating, My pigeons, Love is the greatest Of religions! If you live like I teach you, That couch man cannot reach you; Drop every couch right in the riv', Life's for livin' and love's to give, Life's for livin' so live, live, live! Live it up, Treat yourself to a fling! Fill your cup Before this crazy old, lackadaisy old world goes ping! It's worth repeating, My fishes; If I could wish you The best of wishes, I'd wish you tons of laughter, And love for ever after, Albert Schweitzer for a relative. Life's for livin' and love's to give, Yes life's for livin' so live, live, live! Live it up, Yes live, Yes life's for livin' so live, live, live, Live it up!
