  • Song Lyrics:
    I eat filet mignon seven times a day.
    My bathtub's filled with Perrier.
    What can I say? This is the life.

    I buy a dozen cars when I'm in the mood.
    I hire somebody to chew my food.
    I'm an upwardly mobile dude, this is the life.

    They say that money corrupts you,
    But I can't really tell.
    I got the whole world at my feet
    And I think it's pretty swell.

    I got women lined up outside my door.
    They've been waitin' there since the week before.
    Who could ask for more? This is the life.

    You're dead for a real long time,
    You just can't prevent it.
    So if money can't buy happiness,
    I guess I'll have to rent it.

    Yeah, every day I make the front page news.
    No time to pay my dues.
    I got a million pairs of shoes. This is the life.

    I got a solid gold Cadillac.
    I make a fortune while I sleep.
    You can tell I'm a living legend,
    Not some ordinary creep.

    No way, I'm the boss, the Big Cheese.
    Yeah, I got this town on its knobby little knees.
    I can do just what I please, this is the life.

    That's right, I'm the king, number one,
    I buy monogrammed Kleenex by the ton.
    I pay the bills, I call the shots,
    I grease the palms, I buy the yachts.
    One thing I can guarantee,
    The best things in life, they sure ain't free.
    It's such a thrill just to be me, this is the life.
    Wa-a, this is the life!
