More to Life

There’s a whole lotta bad stuff ya hear about
Every evenin’ on the evenin’ news!
It’s enough to give ya one heck of a headache,
Or even a case o’ the blues!

Seems that every time you look, On that thar TV,
Somebody’s talkin’ ‘bout somethin’ that’s happened
That’s just as depressin’ as can be!

But there’s more to life than you’ll ever get shown
On that little square screen in your livin’ room;
There’s much nicer people, there’s a much bluer sky,
Than you’re ever gonna see with the newscast guy!

There’s a whole lotta good stuff in this old world,
Though it never makes it on the news!
Just look around a little in your neighborhood,
And you’ll see what I mean, ‘cause right in front of you,

The flowers are a-growin’, and people are hello-in’,
So much is going great!
But if you sit and watch for it on TV,
I guarantee, it’s gonna be a long wait!

Because there’s more to life than you’ll ever get shown
On that little square screen in your livin’ room;
There’s much nicer people, there’s a much bluer sky,
Than you’re ever gonna see with the newscast guy!

There’s more – so much more – ever so.. much.. more… To life!!!
So much more to life!
