lyrics

Cats and dogs they fight all day
And all through the night
They bark and scratch and play some catch
That’s the life they live

Boys and girls they play together
Then they have a fight
They howl and scowl then laugh together
That’s the life they live

That’s the life they live
Nothing they wouldn’t give
To hold oh so still
every moment’s new thrill

Mums and Dads they work all day
And try to sleep at night
They hear alarms and get up from
Their beds in quiet misery

That’s the life they live
That’s the life they give
Never to be told
If it’s not shiny it’s not gold

You and me we can’t agree
On what to have for tea
We compromise so don’t capsize
That’s the life we live

That’s the life we live
That’s the life we give
Never to be told
If it’s not shiny it’s not gold
