(Jo Dee Messina/Mark Selby) I used to think that life was all about the joneses Trying to find a way to just keep up some how I had to have it, do it, be it, had to own it A little secret that I finally figured out We spend so much time climbing up the ladder And then we're missing all the things that really matter
[Chorus:] I've got my two feet on the ground Breathin' in and breathin' out Oh yeah Life is good I'm gonna grab on to today Live every minute in the way I know I should Life is good I like to move, I like to run, I like to get it done Or I can stay home on the couch and watch tv Give me sunshine, give me rain, it makes no difference to me It's all the same, all the same to me Call me simple, call me crazy I believe that it's all in what we make yah
Repeat [Chorus:] Call me simple, call me crazy I believe that it's all in what we make yah
Repeat [Chorus:] (out)

"Sloop John B" is a traditional West Indian folk song, and it was a huge hit for The Beach Boys in 1966. They tweaked the lyric, "This is the worst trip since I've been born" to "...I've ever been on" as a wink to acid culture.
"Islands in the Stream" was originally written by The Bee Gees as an R&B song. It was originally written by the brothers for Marvin Gaye, however it was recorded instead as a duet by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton with the Gibb Brothers also contributing vocals.
