Tradin' treasure in for crumbs,

Tomorrow never comes ...

Eat To Live
Music & Lyrics by Dallas Doctor
©2009 Wild Moose Music (BMI)

(Verse 1):
You wake up in the mornin' and wash and comb your hair
Read your email over coffee and find a shirt to wear
You wish that you were livin' life instead of passin' through
But you've got to get to work and there's nothin' you can do

(Chorus 1):
You Eat to Live and Live to Eat
Sleep so you can work, so you can sleep
Work to pay the bills, so you can have a place to stay
So you can get up every morning - and go to work all day

(Verse 2):
You come home every evening,' you watch your favorite shows
It's all that you can muster, 'cause everybody knows
You've been workin' hard all day, just to pay the bills
So you can have a funeral with flowers and the frills

(Chorus 2):
You Eat to Live and Live to Eat
Sleep so you can work, so you can sleep
Work to pay the bills, so you can have a place to stay
So you can get up every morning - and go to work all day

(Verse 3):
Finally it's Friday - the whole weekend's ahead
But you got so many chores that you gotta do instead
You take a little pleasure where you can, but somethin's wrong
Two days is too short - five days is too long

(Chorus 3):
You Eat to Live and Live to Eat
Sleep so you can work, so you can sleep
Work to pay the bills, so you can have a place to stay
So you can get up every morning - and go to work all day

(Bridge):
Livin' for tomorrow,
Tradin' treasure in for crumbs
You oughta know by now
Tomorrow never comes

(Verse 4):
Tomorrow -
You wake up in the mornin' and wash and comb your hair
Read your email over coffee and find a shirt to wear
The clock is tickin'-tockin, you're already runnin' late
But you've got to get to work - yeah your plan is workin' great

(Chorus 4):
You Eat to Live and Live to Eat
Sleep so you can work, so you can sleep
Work to pay the bills, so you can have a place to stay
So you can get up every morning - and go to work all day
