Let's Think About Living

Song Author Boudleaux Bryant Lyrics by: Boudleaux Bryant Performer: Bob Luman Submitted by: gilsi
[D]In every other song that I've heard lately [A7]some fellow gets [D]shot
And his baby and his best friend both die with him [A7]as likely as [D]not  
In [G]half of the other songs some Cat's crying [D]or ready to die
We've lost most of our happy people and [A7]I'm wondering [D]why  

Let's think about [A7]living let's think about [D]loving
Let's think about the [A7]whoopin' and hoppin and boppin'
And the lovie lovie [D]dovin'
Let's [D7]forget about the whinin' and the cryin'
And the shooting and the dying
And the [G]fellow with a switchblade knife
Let's think about [A7]living let's think about [D]life

We lost old Marty Robbins down in [A7]El Paso a little while [D]back
And now Miss Patti Page or [A7]one of them is a-wearing [D]black
And [G]Cathy's Clown has Don and Phil where [D]they feel like they could die
If we keep on a-losin' our singers like that
I'll [A7]be the only one you can [D]buy  

Let's think about [A7]living let's think about [D]loving
Let's think about the [A7]whoopin' and hoppin and boppin'
And the lovie lovie [D]dovin'
Let's [D7]forget about the whinin' and the cryin'
And the shooting and the dying
And the [G]fellow with a switchblade knife
Let's think about [A7]living let's think about [D]life

Let's think about [A7]living let's think about [D]loving
Let's think about the [A7]whoopin' and hoppin and boppin'
And the lovie lovie [D]dovin'
Let's [D7]forget about the whinin' and the cryin'
And the shooting and the dying
And the [G]fellow with a switchblade knife
Let's think about [A7]living let's think about [D]life
Let's think about [A7]living let's think about [D]life
Let's think about [A7]living let's think about [D]life

In every other song that I've heard lately some fellow gets shot
And his baby and his best friend both die with him as likely as not
In half of the other songs some Cat's crying or ready to die
We've lost most of our happy people and I'm wondering why

Let's think about living let's think about loving
Let's think about the whoopin' and hoppin and boppin'
And the lovie lovie dovin'
Let's forget about the whinin' and the cryin'
And the shooting and the dying
And the fellow with a switchblade knife
Let's think about living let's think about life

We lost old Marty Robbins down in El Paso a little while back
And now Miss Patti Page or one of them is a-wearing black
And Cathy's Clown has Don and Phil where they feel like they could die
If we keep on a-losin' our singers like that
I'll be the only one you can buy

Let's think about living let's think about loving
Let's think about the whoopin' and hoppin and boppin'
And the lovie lovie dovin'
Let's forget about the whinin' and the cryin'
And the shooting and the dying
And the fellow with a switchblade knife
Let's think about living let's think about life

Let's think about living let's think about loving
Let's think about the whoopin' and hoppin and boppin'
And the lovie lovie dovin'
Let's forget about the whinin' and the cryin'
And the shooting and the dying
And the fellow with a switchblade knife
Let's think about living let's think about life
Let's think about living let's think about life
Let's think about living let's think about life
