The Bodies Are Better

Lyrics

Hey come on up, now don’t you be shy

The parties are better close to the sky

The money is tight but clothing is too

You can’t have fun till you live like we do

Now don’t go too fast in search of success

The older you’ll look the more that you press

And the ones who have more now wish they had less

The bodies are better, the bodies are better, the bodies are better up here

The bodies are better, the bodies are better, the bodies are better up here

 

Hey come on check ‘em out down below

We think they’re on top ‘cause they have all the dough

They once were here too when young without fuss

And now they pay high to look more like us

Still some of us think we want to be there

But gold is a bad exchange for no care

And they wish they were us and think it’s not fair

‘Cause the bodies are better, the bodies are better, the bodies are better up here

The bodies are better, the bodies are better, the bodies are better up here

 

Hey now don’t whine you know it’s the truth

There is no price to recapture your youth

You had your years too to do what you could

You’ve only one shot and I hope it was good

And when it’s my turn I’ll know it’s not right

But I’ll cling to the edge and put up a fight

But when fire is doused it can’t reignite

Oh the bodies are better, the bodies are better, the bodies are better up here

The bodies are better, the bodies are better, the bodies are better up here
