Couple of guys sittin' around drinkin' Down at the Starlight Bar One of 'em says, "You know I've been thinking" Other one says, "That won't get you too far"
He says, "This is your life, and welcome to it It's just workin' and drinkin' and dreams Ad on TV says ?Just Do It' Hell if I know what that means"
The secret of life is a good cup of coffee The secret of life is keep your eye on the ball The secret of life is a beautiful woman And Marilyn stares down from the barroom wall
"You and me, we're just a couple of zeros Just a couple of down-and-outs But movie stars and football heroes What have they got to be unhappy about?"
So they turn to the bartender, "Sam, what do you think? What's the key that unlocks that door?" Sam don't say nothin', just wipes off the bar And he pours them a couple more
'Cause the secret of life is in Sam's martinis The secret of life is in Marilyn's eyes The secret of life is in Monday Night Football Rolling Stones records and Mom's apple pie
Sam looks up from his Sunday paper Says, "Boys, you're on the wrong track The secret of life is there ain't no secret And you don't get your money back" Hey
The secret of life is gettin' up early The secret of life is stayin' up late The secret of life is try not to hurry But don't wait Don't wait
The secret of life is a good cup of coffee The secret of life is keep your eye on the ball The secret of life is to find the right woman The secret of life is nothin' at all Oh, it's nothin' at all The secret of life
Couple of guys sittin' around drinkin' Down at the Starlight Bar One of 'em says, "You know I've been thinking" Other one says, "That won't get you too far" "That won't get you too far"

Brit from Nashville, TnRight before Faith was to shoot the video for this song the building was caught on fire. It was impossible to use the inside for the video still, but they still used the outside of the building. They shot the inside shots at anther location. Great video.
Camille from Toronto, OhAn all time classic song & video. Somehow I think Faith Hill resembles Ashley Judd in the video...I like how she switches off from glammed-up to down-to-earth looks. Gretchen Peters, a fabulous songwriter. We named our bunny Gretchen after her! And she's right...life IS about moments, and the secret is to realize that you're happy when you're happy. And ain't nothin' like a good cup a coffee.
David from Hanove, WvThis song says so much when I hear it..It gets you to really think about the little things in life that we all take for granted at times..We all look for the big picture when its usually right in front of our noses and we dont realize it..
