Artist/Band: Edwin McCain
Lyrics for Song: Beatiful Life
Lyrics for Album: Messenger [1999]



Another beautiful morning under stars and bars

And F series pickups and rusted out cars

And they're eating breakfast at the strip bar

Just to have a peek...

And the beer soaked angels spread their wings

And dream of twenties and diamonds and things

And somehow that might ease the sting

Of the company they keep

Yeah...

And the vets still talk about the Tet offensive

And the freshmen boys all look so pensive

Because living large is so expensive

Hope daddy fueled the jet...

And we'll all fly out to the Hard Rock casino

And we'll put on our neatly pressed and fine chinos

And we'll laugh at the guy in the El Camino

Is that the only car he could get?

It's a beautiful life

It's just as advertised

It's all for one low price

Just read the fine print, and you'll be content

With your beautiful life

And record smoothies say "What a sound"

You're the greatest thing we've found

But you're gonna have to lose a few pounds

We're gonna put you on TV

And don't think our place is so swank

Don't worry about that guy, he's high on crank

That's exactly why his last record tanked

And let that be a lesson to me



Chorus

And all our churches glow

Communion wafers trash TV shows

Say "Hey, at least you don't have this strife"

'Cause you'll be warm and safe

In your beautiful life

Yeah...



And it's hard to tell what's true compassion

When it's dresse$ up in hair and nails and fashion

And the tabloids all rush to cash in on what we should believe

And I hope I never see the day

When there's nothing left on the planet left to save

And oxygen is the designer crusade

As we all fight to breathe...



Chorus
