Riding With The King

This song is by B.B. King.

Some things in life are bad
They can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse.
When you're chewing on life's gristle
Don't grumble, give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best...

And...Don't you know you're Riding with the King...
Don't you know you're Riding with the Queen...

If life seems jolly rotten
There's something you've forgotten
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
When you're feeling in the dumps
Don't be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whistle - that's the thing.

And...Don't you know you're Riding with the King...
Don't you know you're Riding with the Queen...

For life is quite absurd
And death's the final word
You must always face the curtain with a bow.
Forget about your sin - give the audience a grin
Enjoy it - it's your last chance anyhow.

So always look on the bright side of death
Just before you draw your terminal breath

Life's a piece of shit
When you look at it
Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true.
You'll see it's all a show
Keep 'em laughing as you go
Just remember that the last laugh is on you.

And Don't you know you're Riding with the King...
Don't you know you're Riding with the King...
(Come on guys, cheer up!)
Don't you know you're Riding with the King...
Don't you know you're Riding with the King...
(Worse things happen at sea, you know.)
Don't you know you're Riding with the King...
(I mean - what have you got to lose?)
(You know, you come from nothing - you're going back to nothing.
What have you lost? Nothing!)
Don't you know you're Riding with the King...
You're Riding with the King,
You're Riding, you're Riding with the King... (repeat to fade)
