I Got Life

Album: Hair Soundtrack (1967)

Songfacts®:

  • Like the rest of the songs in Hair, "I Got Life "has lyrics by James Rado and Gerome Ragni, music by Galt MacDermot. It is performed by Claude and the Tribe, and might be considered humorous, but not when the singer stands on the dining room table and belts it out at the start of a family meal. >>
