  • Life is just a bowl of cherries;
    Don't make it serious;
    Life's too mysterious.
    You work, you save, you worry so,
    But you can't take your dough when you go, go, go.
    So keep repeating it's the berries;
    The strongest oak must fall.
    The sweet things in life
    To you were just loaned,
    So how can you lose what you've never owned?
    Life is just a bowl of cherries,
    So live and laugh at it all. Writer/s: LEW BROWN, RAY HENDERSON
