The Kinks – Live Life (US Single Mix)

then they salute the Union Jack.
Act normal there’s nothing wrong
About world revolution and social unrest

Stay cool, just carry on

Don’t get depressed when you read in the press
You gotta live life for yourself, can’t live for anyone else

because they’re dedicated followers of any old thing.
Carry on it’s all you can do
Weekend revolutionaries protest and sing
Don’t panic, don’t lose control
You gotta live life, that’s all you do
Nobody gonna live their life for you
They got every solution for every revolution.
Nobody gonna live your life for you
are killing everybody else And the I.R.A.
Oh, life’s a mother, oh, life’s a mother
So don’t you believe all you read in the headlines

Try not to panic when you switch on the news

for every cause that’s ever been in fashion.
It’s only life it’s really fine
Right-wing fascists beat up the blacks,
Live life see it through
They live in the slums just like the poor people do
but they’d rather sniff coke instead of glue.

You gotta live life and be yourself
And see crooked politicians and the unemployment queues
You can’t live life for anyone else
it’s not the end, so just carry on.
You gotta live life for yourself, can’t live life for anyone else
You gotta live life, you gotta live life
With the fascists and the left wing militants
Live life, you gotta live life
Oh, life’s a mother, oh, life’s a mother
Keep your head, keep ahold
Have you heard about trouble throughout the land
Nobody gonna live their life for you
Extra verse from long version:
Trendy intellectuals always take action,

You gotta live life, that’s all you can do
Out of work executives are killing themselves
You can’t pretent there’s nothing wrong,
You gotta live life that’s all you do
