LIFE MADE ME BEAUTIFUL AT FORTY (Eartha Kitt / Joachim Kühn) Eartha Kitt - 1991 I've been through clouds and stormy skies On different worlds, all filled with lives I've travelled through the steams of lovers And wiped my tears upon their covers I've lived a life of rogue and queen And died my hair to fit the scene I've had my ups, I've had my downs And sipped champagne with worldly crowns I've been as honest as I could And ashamed, the shame that knows I should I've been loved and I've been lied to And found a few shoulders I could cry to And all those years I thought life naughty, ah-hah Should make me beautiful at forty (Instrumental Break) For life's not been so bad to take For now I've cut life's golden cake Into a million tiny squares And with each piece recall the years The taste of life has not been so bad Between the tears and joys I've had But with some good and a little singing She always allowed me to get a grin And all those years I've spent on my youth Thinking knowledge brought the truth I know life has her games to play And puzzles it, crackling play So, graves are dug and wars are lost But life goes on at any cost (Instrumental Break) I do think life has made me wiser So there is no reason to disguise her Even tried to rearrange her She has been fair, I would not change her, hah-hum She presents me life so simply In a cup that's almost empty With a little wine to tease me But not enough to really please me And if I drink, and let her take me She is wise enough to wake me But only after dreams and visions Allowing me to see these decisions, ah-hah All those years I thought life naughty She made me beautiful at forty (Transcribed by Monique Adriaansen & Mel Priddle - March 2005)
