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 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, nothing to eat but food,

Life is so peculiar but you can't stay home and brood.


That’s life!  is so peculiar, the desert’s only got sand

The ocean’s only got water - you never know where you stand.


When I go out to dinner, there's nothing to wear but clothes,

Whenever I get sleepy, there's nothing to do but doze,

Whenever I get thirsty, there's nothing to do but drink,

Life is so peculiar that it makes you stop and think,


That’s life!  is so peculiar, a fork belongs with the knife,

Corn beef is lost without cabbage,

a husband should have a wife!

Life is so peculiar, but as everybody says, “That's life.”

Oh, life is so peculiar - a bird can usually sing,

A pearl is made by an oyster - you can’t be sure of a thing!

When I get tired of resting, there’s nothing to do but walk

And when I don’t care to listen there’s nothing to do but talk

When I’m up in my airplane there’s nothing to do but fly

Life is so peculiar that I often wonder why.


Life - is so peculiar, a fork belongs with the knife,

Corn beef is lost without cabbage,

a husband should have a wife,

Life is so peculiar, but as everybody says, “That's life.”


Why don’t you give it a try?
