Things I Learned From Life, Vol.II

© 2013 by Michael Jerling

From the album Halfway Home



The checkout girl is cute and young
Majoring in chewing gum
She doesn't think my little joke is funny
I'm at the age they look through me
Like a separate species
One for the list of things I learned from life

I have a thought, I jot it down
Which at the time seems quite profound
But later it's just fortune cookie jive
You'd think I'd been around this long
I would have more than a song
For my list of things I learned from life

Try to keep my head down
Play it safe
If I keep my head down
You won't see my face

Up there on a Vegas stage
Singin' "I Did It My Way"
But on second thought I guess maybe I did
If I have my health, I have a home
I am loved, I'm not alone
One for the list of things I learned from life

The checkout lady's middle-aged
She smiles when I make my play
I'm gonna wow 'em at the nursing home
I have a thought, I jot it down
Which at the time seems quite profound
One for the list of things I learned from life
One for the list of things I learned from life
One for the list of things I learned
