Here’s To Life!


No complaints and no regrets

I still believe in chasing dreams and placing bets

And I have learned that all you give is all you get

So give it all you’ve got

I had my share, I drank my fill

And even though I’m satisfied, I’m hungry still

To see what’s down another road, beyond a hill

And do it all again

So here’s to life

And every joy it brings

Here’s to life

To dreamers and their dreams

Funny how the time just flies

How love can go from warm hellos to sad goodbyes

And leave you with the memories you’ve memorized

To keep your winters warm

But there’s no yes in yesterday

And who knows what tomorrow brings, or takes away

As long as I’m still in the game, I want to play

For laughs, for life, for love

So here’s to life

And every joy it brings

Here’s to life

To dreamers and their dream

May all your stomrs be weathered

And all that’s good get better

Here’s to life

A friend reminded me this week of the beautiful song “Here’s To Life” written by lyricist Phyllis Molinary with composer Artie Butler. Shirley Horn recored it in 1990 with an arrangement and production by Johnny Mandel.

 

I wanted to share it with you today!!  Enjoy!!
