  • 3 Ain't This the Life
  • 4 I'm So Bad
  • Livin' way up now in a penthouse high
    Our steaks are rare and our martini's dry
    Folks below they say it ain't fair
    Hell with them, I really don't care
    Joie de vivre, mon amie
    Ain't this the life

    Having a party on a big jet plane
    I got so drunk that I could feel no pain
    Hangin' out in Acapulco
    Drinkin' rum and sniffin' coco
    Pretty seƱorita, look this way
    Dancing through the night
    Everything's all right
    Girlfriend and a wife
    Ain't this the life, ain't this the life
    Ain't this the life, baby, baby, baby . .

    Tropical island in the deep blue sea
    The natives are friendly and the lobster's free
    Sipping Cognac like a French king
    Plenty of room, I own the whole thing
    Joie de vivre, mon amie
    Ain't this the life

    Think I'll go out now on a shopping spree
    Breakfast in New York, dinner in Paris
    Hangin' out with Lynn and Suzie
    Have a massage and a Jacuzzi
    Climb into bed and see what's on TV
    Dancing through the night
    Everything's all right
    Girlfriend and a wife . .
    Ain't this the life, ain't this the life
    Ain't this the life, tell me, tell me, tell me . .
