Oh, life is so peculiar You get so wet in the rain You get so warm in the sunshine But it doesn't pay to complain When I get up each morning There's nothing to breathe but air When I look in the mirror There's nothing to comb but hair When I sit down to breakfast There's nothing to eat but food Life is so peculiar But you can't stay home and brood Yes, life is so peculiar The deserts only got sand The oceans only got water You never know where you stand When I go out to dinner There's nothing to wear but clothes And whenever I get sleepy There's nothing to do but doze And whenever I get thirsty There's nothing to do but drink Life is so peculiar That it makes you stop and think Oh, life is so peculiar A bird can usually sing A pearl is made by an oyster Man, you can't be sure of a thing When I get tired of resting There's nothing to do but work When I don't care to listen There's nothing to do but talk When I'm up in my aeroplane There's nothing to do but fly Life is so peculiar And I often wonder why Yes, life is so peculiar A fork belongs with the knife And you know what else Corned beef is lost without cabbage A husband should have a wife And you know that life is so peculiar But as everybody says that's life, that's life Well, what do you know, that's life! ******************** Frank Sinatra, Helen Carroll & The Swantones w Percy Faith & his Orch rec Aug 2nd 1950 New York Oh, life is so peculiar, You get so wet in the rain, You get so warm in the sunshine, It doesn't pay to complain! When I get up each mornin', There's nothin' to breathe but aor! When I look in the mirroe, There's nothin' to comb but hair! When I sit down to breakfast, There's nothin' to eat but food! Life is so peculiar But you can't stay home and brood! Yes, life is so peculiar, A fork belongs with a knife; Corned beef is lost without cabbage, A husband should have a wife. Life is peculiar, But as everybody says, "That's life!". (that's life!) Oh, life is so peculiar, The desert's only got sand! The oceans's only got water, You never know where you stand! When I get out to dinner, There's nothin' to wear but clothes! Whenever I get sleepy, There's nothin' to do but doze! Whenever I get thirsty, There's nothin' to do but drink! Life is so peculiar That it makes you stop and think! Yes, life is so peculiar, It's so peculiar, A fork belongs with a knife; (a fork belongs with a knife) Corned beef is lost without cabbage, A husband should have a wife. Kife is so peculiar, But as everbody says, "That's life!". That's right!
