The Dolf Album / Track 19 / That's Life

This little song fragment was written in 1995... OJ was in the news constantly... For some reason there were a million stories that month about Crack addiction... And I had made a trip to the DMV and saw an interesting (and very miserable) dude waiting in line... Add it all up and you get "That's Life", track 19 from The Dolf Album. A trademark Dolf dark humor song... Definitely needs to be re-recorded and polished up a bit... But I've always liked this one. Favorite line: "Three rotten kids and one's suckin' on the pipe / That's Life / This is your life"

“That’s Life”
Words and Music by Dolf Muccillo

There’s dirt on your clothes, big fat wife
Three rotten kids, one’s suckin’ on the pipe

*That’s life, this is your life
You could solve all your problems now
If you only had a butcher knife

She spends all your money, you can’t afford a car
If you hadn’t met her you could have gone so far

*chorus

The things you could have been,
The things you could have done
All the dreams you had and now they’re gone

*chorus
