LET'S THINK ABOUT LIVIN'
(Bryant)
BOB LUMAN (WArner Bros. 5172, 1960)

In every little song that I heard lately
Some fellow gets shot
And his baby and his best friend both died with him
As likely as not
In half of the other songs some cat's cryin'
Or ready to die
We lost most all of our happy people and
I'm a wondering why

Let's think about livin' (Let's think about livin')
Let's think about lovin' (Let's think about lovin')
Let's about a hoopin' and a hoppin'
And a boppin' and a lovy-lovy-dovin'
Let's forget about the whinin' and the cryin'
And the shootin' and the dying
And the fellow with the switchblade knife
Let's think about livin'
Let's think about life

We lost old Marty Robbins
Down in El Paso a little while back
And now miss Patty Page, one of them is wearing black
Cathy's clown has Don and Phil
Where they feel like they could die
If we keep on losing our singers like that
I'll be the only one you can buy

Let's think about livin' (Let's think about livin')
Let's think about lovin' (Let's think about lovin')
Let's about a hoopin' and a hoppin'
And a boppin' and a lovin'-lovelyin'-dovin'
Let's forget about the whinin' and the cryin'
And the shootin' and the dying
And the fellow with the switchblade knife
Let's think about livin'
Let's think about life
Let's think about livin'
Let's think about life
