EXCITING LIFE, THE
(Earl Hagen / Hubert Spencer)
as recorded by Julie London
with Orchestra directed by Pete King
I've had a taste of the exciting life
And I can't settle down any more.
I can't live as I did just before
I had a taste of the exciting life.
I've had my fling at the exciting life
And I find I respond to its thrills.
I like all of the tiniest chills
That go with living the exciting life.
And strange as it may be
For a girl like me,
All my dreams and ideals are gone.
Although I have been blind
To a life of this kind,
It's the way I must live from now on.
I've had my taste of the exciting life
And I'm ready again for the fall.
Who it's with doesn't matter at all,
As long as I can live the inviting exciting life!
