Life Lyrics

Artist: Des'ree
Album: Life


Life, oh life, oh life, oh life,
doo, doot doot dooo.
Life, oh life, oh life, oh life,
doo, doot dooo

I'm afraid of the dark,
'specially when I'm in a park
And there's no-one else around,

Ooh, I get the shivers
I don't want to see a ghost,
It's a sight that I fear most
I'd rather have a piece of toast
And watch the evening news
(Repeat Chorus)

I'm a superstitious girl,
I'm the worst in the world
Never walk under ladders,
I keep a rabbit's tail

I'll take you up on a dare,
Anytime, anywhere
Name the place, I'll be there,
Bungee jumping, I don't care!
(Repeat Chorus)

life, doo, doot dooo
doo, doot dooo

So after all is said and done
I know I'm not the only one
Life indeed can be fun, if you really want to

Sometimes living out your dreams,
Ain't as easy as it seems
You wanna fly around the world,
In a beautiful balloon
(Repeat Chorus)

by Annaliese on 5/29/2008 2:49am

I don't want to see a ghost,
It's a sight that I fear most
I'd rather have a piece of toast

by hello on 6/10/2008 6:50am
it's got a good tune, i reckon
by Anynomonous on 6/16/2008 3:32am
its a great song! no deep meaning just fun!
by angel.. on 6/16/2008 4:11am
i really like the song., releive my stress in work...
by RhysTobin:] on 6/19/2008 10:13pm
It's such an amazing song!
I think its simplicity goes in contrast to what the song is actually about, life.
It like, amazing ^^.
by Simon Cowell on 6/21/2008 3:51am
Surely a sunday roast would be better!!

I would be very dissapointed if it was somebody over the age of 4 that wrote this.
by VERA on 6/22/2008 3:54pm
this song is wonderfull
by Rebecca Wright on 7/4/2008 4:22pm
This song is so inspiring , so well brought together. The lyrics are not usual but I guess that's what makes it unique ! I love this song , it cheers me up and reminds me that life is worth living and that its not perfect but when you can put it in song everything seems to make sense !!! TRUST ME !! =] !!
by Ant on 7/7/2008 8:35am
This is one of good piece.
But I wonder, why people bother to waste time to leave a comment and look for the lyric for something they don't think good or rather they hate.
by Nihil on 7/9/2008 12:28pm
The lyrics are pathetic. It's a terrible, shitey arsed song and those who live their life by it on here presumably don't go to parks but instead eat toast and avoid ghosties? Dear dear.
by serah on 7/11/2008 8:55am
i loved the song b4 i read the lyrics. i don't live my life in fear and i don't think i will be enjoying the song anymore. I think the lyrics are rather silly.
by a walk down memorly lane on 7/15/2008 2:45am
this song floods my mind with memories ohhhhhh life
by =) on 7/16/2008 6:30pm
WORST lyrics but its a song about life so it has to be random.
It makes me feel happy so yeh!!
by AGREED ^^^ on 7/17/2008 5:11am
I agree to the comment above aka "=)" the lyrics are very RANDOM and the WORST i have ever read/listened to BUT in all fairness its catchy & makes you smile and thats what 50% of music is supposed to do =)

beat that comment =P hahaha

by Ghost on 7/24/2008 7:30pm
I don't understand any words in the song text. But music is really cool. It makes so happy, so shiny. I don't know why :)
by Gaz Reese on 8/22/2008 7:52am
Bag of shite
by Des'ree's Fan on 9/3/2008 9:46am
I ABSOLUTEMENTE love this song ... Some people may think it's flaucinaucinihilipilification (longest word in Oxford's dictionary / meaning worthless) BUTT I (Moi) don think so.. Absolutely love this song and hopefully Des'ree will write more songs as inspiring than this


Davidson and Simon Cowell,(Yar right)Just for a reminder: PUT A SOCK IN IT...
by Danni on 9/8/2008 10:02am
Aww this song's so silly its brilliant.

I love that it doesn't make sense, why should it? Life makes no bleeding sense most of the time.
by singer on 9/10/2008 9:56pm
I love the simple beauty in these lyrics. Unless you really see natural comfort in these actions, the lyrics do sound insane-but they are not. Would you call it insane if someone who was scared of ghosts rather overcame their fears by watching tv and drowning out the noise? This song has much more meaning in its words than it seems-that's why it's harder to understand, but wonderful once you do.

oh life.
by Immortal Girl on 9/13/2008 12:34pm
I really don`t understand this song...I`m pretty sure that the lyrics are some sort of irony, becouse they really sound as if they were written by a four-year old, but I still believe they a deeper meaning.The song sounded so deep whwen I first heard it, but now when I read the lyrics I`m just...confused...
by mooishness on 10/9/2008 3:18pm
HA HA- these lyrics are CLASSIC!!
by page 1 on 10/22/2008 9:26am
this makes me so happy i love it =) it shows all the good things in life which i love oh life oh life this song makes me love life!!!!!
by EER'SED on 10/28/2008 8:20am
by :D on 11/9/2008 9:52am
i'm amazed at the number of ppl who even bothers to comment just so they can criticize..

don't be afraid to live life the way you want even at times when life seems too difficult.

that's the message.
by EER'SED on 11/14/2008 5:03am
by keeeeeeeeeeeet on 11/25/2008 3:17pm
likeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee very muchhhhhhhhhhhhh
by Eeeny Weeny on 12/1/2008 12:17pm
What absolutely awful lyrics..
a joy to behold! Jesus.. toast! And that last line..'Life indeed can be fun, if you really want to'

Sheer genius! Lol..
by Ali Garcia on 12/7/2008 1:44pm
When I first heard this song, I instantly fell in love with it's quick wit, humour and sensitivity of all the issues which trouble human kind e.g Ghosts and toast.
Upon reading the lyrics it confounded my initial thoughts and inspired me to write my own pile of gibberish shit song and sing it.
by Marçal on 12/15/2008 10:23am
This song is wonderful
I like it.

Congratulations Des'ree

f*** this sooo my life
by Deborah Thebba on 12/26/2008 12:53pm
I love this song. The lyrics are about daring our deeper feelings, understanding they are childlike. In my opinion the puerile language and rimes are there to remit us to this perception.I remember my father making rimes like that to talk about bad things to me when I was a child.

by Cordelia on 1/10/2009 11:57pm
I thought these lyrics were a dare "hey Des, I bet you can't get the word 'toast' into a #1 hit" or perhaps a joke "haha... Remember that time toast stopped me from committing suicide ... Ha ... Haha" I hear she writes lyrics for sesame street now. I'd love to pay out this song some more but it's getting dark in this park

Absolutely nothing wrong with the lyrics! Ty Des'ree, u're a class act.

life as really as it sounds in thas song
by James Read on 2/13/2009 10:40am
I love this song, the lyrics are so inspiring. Truly precious
by Phil Reid on 2/15/2009 4:38am
I thought this song was by Alanis Morrisette?
by Alex Wong on 2/16/2009 7:01am
After years that i lost touch with it, i still make it a point to listen to it once a while to inspire me..
by ER on 2/18/2009 1:16pm
This sing inspired me so much. It inspired me to write, shout and tell evreyone how CRAP this song is!
Yeah the tune is fun and happy, but the lyrics really top the list as my all time worst lyrics for the ghost-most-toast verse.
by Mariama on 2/19/2009 9:53am
I really love this song Des'ree is a great singer
by Vitalik on 2/26/2009 4:59am
I can see this song has inspired plenty of people. The same it has done with me. When my mood is not very high, I'm just listening to it. Loudly!
by Yeahhhh on 3/30/2009 4:30pm
this song is just... wow.

i dont know if it is just crazy talk, or if the ladys some kind of genius
by :] on 4/4/2009 8:48am
True, lyrics sucks ass.
but the song itself? the music, is amazing.
just enjoy the melody people, don't get all complicated about it =]
by j.remy on 4/15/2009 2:52am
this song rules.. its just for laughs... thats the best thing about it.. it doesnt matter if the lyrics are stupid.. jebus
kissing you was also a good song
by F on 4/15/2009 12:21pm
This song is by far the biggest lyrical abortion I've ever encountered.
Not only does the lyrics sound like they've been composed by a drunk teenager - Des'Ree also manages to contradict herself.

"Life indeed can be fun, if you really want to" -- really, Des'Ree?
Well, if you want to have fun, maybe you should stop being an annoying superstitious girl who's afraid of the dark and made-up ghosts. You should also consider doing something else in you spare time other than eating toast and watching the god damn evening news.

And no, Des'Ree. We all know you won't go bungee jump or fly around the world in a balloon. You've just told us that you're more afraid of things in the world than a 7-year old girl. And that probably includes anything that lifts off the ground. So shut the fuck up.

And for all those of you who feel inspired by this song: You have the emotional depth and intellectual substance of a fetus with alcohol syndrome. I hope you contract herpes.
by nqaba on 4/26/2009 9:02am
No doubt "life" is a kul song. To understand the lyrics you gotta know that some people believe in superstition and what Des'ree has done is magnificent! kip it up.
by ;) *!ElO!* ;) on 6/3/2009 12:07pm
The melody 2 the songs realy good bt whn i saw the lyrics i was lyk wtf bt lyk al in al the songs dopest n puts a smile on me face =) Xx
by jeca on 6/9/2009 8:11am
song is wonderful,but lyrics are stupid,but still love song because of melody .....:)))
by jack2929 on 6/10/2009 2:36pm
well i like the song, its good that so many ppl commented. i dont know what the msg is but song surely it good to listen
by Dan Ryan on 6/14/2009 5:02am
Wow, some people really get 'excited' about something as simple as this? Anyone who thinks its intelligent or funny to joke about alcohol syndrome has to be lower in the social heirarchy than the writer of a harmless song, the lyrics of which are a constant source of joy to me and millions of others! Sure, they mean nothing but they are hillarious!

p.s. some of us like toast and the evening news... haha!
by laurens_mail2006 on 7/3/2009 5:19am
This lyrics of the song "Life" are simple indeed , but they are for those who have more imagination and who think pozitivily.And indeed life can be fun , if u realy want to.
by laurens_mail2006 on 7/3/2009 5:22am
So don't criticisize it any more it's a beautiful song.
by Hahaha on 7/5/2009 4:45am
These are the WORST lyrics evaaa! Get a life toast eater!
by Bri Vee on 7/10/2009 12:51pm
Worst lyrics ever. Haven't heard from her in a while, probably died of shame (in agony).
by What the Heck! on 7/25/2009 2:46pm
I challenge the hypocritical and cynical commentators to shut the ***k up. Show me the song you have ever written before giving such stupid comments
by Kirsty on 8/14/2009 8:07am
I like the song but the lyrics are god awful!
by PrettyFireFly on 9/6/2009 11:10am
ill be featuring this song on my site. Please visit
by baldy man on 9/8/2009 2:34pm
ok What The Heck! I'll share my latest lyrics with you...'Ooooh! life, tell me is that a goat? I've a sore throat; and a awful woolly coat but I'm off in my blue boat cos i've got a life dood oo doo doo oo oo oo life!
How's that?
by nipster on 9/15/2009 5:23pm
i think that this song is just about accepting that life can be weird and ironic and it reflects on this fact.
whenever i don't understand what life has thrown at me, good or bad, i may sigh and stop trying to work it out, thinking "that's life" and embrace what i have ahead.
i often sing this song when i feel like this.
by Mele-Lou on 9/15/2009 10:45pm
Apparently this WAS voted the WORST lyrics written within this decade according to statistics LOL
by anon on 9/29/2009 5:46am
Baldy man zinged it haha, but seriously, who cares if the song is good and catchy, good lyrics are essential, unless you are an imbecile.
by Sue on 10/4/2009 6:01am
This is one of my fav songs . Thanks to Deborah Thebba who so eloquently put the critics of this song to shame.
by German on 10/21/2009 5:15pm
i believe is harder to write a deeply happy song, than a sad one, and thats why, maybe some people think that here weve got a funny and non-sirious lyrics.
Its a happy song that tales about the beauty of life.
Anyway, if you like to hear deeply music, just change the song! easy!
by Adlane on 10/25/2009 11:34pm
listening to such a song in low spirits moments is quite useful, it's damn uplifting
by mandla on 11/27/2009 7:55am
i really love this song no matter what ppl say. indeed life cn be fine if u really want to
by henk on 11/27/2009 12:32pm
i guess the singer wrote the words in a hurry. they prove that you can still have a good song with shitty lyrics, because the arrangement is very skilfull. the opposite doesn't work, imagine shakespeare over kenny g.
by sammy on 12/22/2009 2:51am
this song really inspires me,since primary school when i was still a little kid,i used to listen to this song though i dint knew the artist,now am a grown up n still i like the song...mmmh gosh!thaks des ree
by hope on 1/28/2010 1:50am
this song really inspire's me,it lift's my spirit each time am down,making me understand that life is full of up's and down's,teaching me that all my dream's cannot be achieved in one day,and giving me a reason to love's simply a master piece.....thank's des'ree

i'm a proprocratic girl i'm the worst in the world, i'd rather fly around the room in a f cup bra.

AAAAHHHHHH life, o life
by Andy Walas on 5/27/2010 6:56am
As I'm reading the lyrics, I can see that the meaning is revealed via a contradiction. A contradiction between the first 3 verses where she a pitiful, fearful, prejudiced girl and the latter 2 verses where she is reckless, with no fears and in the bottom line, happy. Something like LIFE happened and it's revealed to her... Just LIVE. If this is the matter, I think these are really beautiful, inspired lyrics.
by Justin Bieber on 6/9/2010 9:50pm
Wow.. um.. this song do i put this.. terrible? Who rhymes toast with ghost? Only musical geniuses like me can write REAL music.

by david on 6/8/2008 2:37am
i swear i was going to kill my self and this song came on the radio and now im happy.....two weeks ago...OH

Funny you should say that i had a drug overdose when i was 14 (im 25 now) and when i was recovering in hospital, all i could hear was this song, i begged the nurses and my mum to turn it off.... which they said i was nuts cause nothing was playing! still haunts me to this day.....took it as a sign i was ment to be here... im married with two kids now, cant say im overly happy in my life plenty of things i should do, but are happy. i have a great family <3
by kristoni on 8/9/2010 11:58pm
oh P.s JUSTIN BEIBER.... you are a kid whose has had his 15 min worth of fame and will fade to this distant where are they now kids..... grow up a bit and when you learn what love really is THEN SING ABOUT IT! you cant sing a song you dont feel, she is a true artist, your a wannabe.

by kate on 10/9/2010 7:24am
lyrics reveal little but melody and strength of voice are uplifting. Chorus is uplifting...and by itself powerful
by Johnny on 10/21/2010 7:37am
I had this song playing in my head for the past week without even listening to it.

This song isn't hard to interpret.
The randomness of her lyrics is a reflection of life being random. She mentions fears, superstitions, spontaneity and dreams. All things we can relate to.

It's better than most of the garbage we've had for the last decade :/

by Steven on 12/13/2010 1:17pm
This song called LIFE.

If you think the lyric is a mess, your life is a mess too.

I understand it perfectly fine.

Maybe my life is a mess, not yours. lolz

These song always remind me about my childhood
by Simon Cowell on 1/23/2011 6:57am
Im afraid of my fart
It gives me an attack of the heart
Inspires me to crap songs
When i watch the evening news

I can smoke like a train
bucket bongs make me insane
Makes me eat too much toast
Then i watch the evening news

Im afraid of a ghost
So i make a piece of toast
Then i drink a big coffee
Then i have a sh*t and pee

I carry around my colostomy
Arthiritis in my knees
Its fun to be 83
And watch the evening news
by harrison brucez on 1/28/2011 10:20am

The first time i heard the song,i felt i waz in waz a nice one to lizten to.God blez her wherever she is.
by Yupyup on 3/17/2011 10:47pm
Agree with the above! you can't tell someone else how they should feel about a song =/ or a book or whatever has affect on us. Everyone's different and there's always something that will not be as equally important to you as the person next to you. I like what someone said before about life not making sense and this song not making sense. there definately is more to it than meets the eye and obviously the people that don't look past the lyrics are more of the type that want things specified and straight up :) It ain't always about the lyrics either, some ppl just like the tune ;) there's more to life than criticising a song someone wrote about how they see life guys...y don't y'all just get along? lol peace out!
by Shaun on 4/7/2011 12:23am
i like the song but the lyrics are pretty weird when you read them
by daisy on 4/10/2011 3:57pm
That song is awesome her voice is amazing but why she sung the song life
by Ndoho on 4/12/2011 6:19pm
Happy song
by Sure21 on 4/13/2011 10:00pm
Ok so this is the hold music at my job. I thought I hated the song but the more i listen to it it grows on you. I especially now that I have actually paid attention to the lyrics. They are just hillarious. I mean how random to go from talking about fears in the park to eating toast watching the news? Strange song but I think I have to say I enjoy it.
by Anthony on 5/3/2011 5:12am
yes the lyrics are a bit hard to understand @ times and so is LIFE.strange,clever,comlex,simply stupid whatever. I really love to sing this song and play my guitar.
by Ed on 6/17/2011 1:11pm
This song is so life affirming. Personally, though I would rather see a ghost than have a piece of toast. But that's life, hey guys! Everyone's different!!
by me xxxx on 6/28/2011 12:47pm
i like it but its poinless
by Shingie maponga on 7/8/2011 1:03pm
The simplicity of the lyrics gives the song its uniqueness. Nice singing along. Been listening to it since 98 but didn t know the lyrics or understand the meaning.
by jhade on 7/8/2011 6:46pm
I like it... doesnt matter if its simple... that's what made so effortless and a winner... imagine it's still played in radios until now...if you can write better, try to beat this song...hehehehehe
by L on 7/28/2011 1:25am
People just like criticizing even when unnecessary.

"don't be afraid to live life the way you want even at times when life seems too difficult.
that's the message." - What a cool track Des, can't get enough of it.
by ebo on 8/1/2011 8:08am
simple, catchy and fits both happy n sad moments. I love it.

by Darlinoay on 9/13/2011 10:56am
Dis one of the most tucking some, if deeply examined, the song is a paradox & pregnant with meaning. The artist is foundaful, i will like to have a toast with her she is awesome & creative i love her. Www.darlinoay @

She's got a valid point. A piece of toast is far preferable to a ghost ... especially in a park.

I work in security and was doing a 14 hour shift last night when this came on the radio. When I heard "I'd rather have a piece of toast" I laughed so hard I had to pull over otherwise I would have crashed the car. Thanks Des'ree for brightening up my shift.

I love this song it inspires me in my gloomy dark stages of life and challenges me to go on as that is what LIFE is all about.:)

Wat complication! Des'ree seems 2 be complex with this one, trading the richness of her lyrics for the beauty of its tune, or rather, she spent time searching for words that rhymes that she forgot the central message she was to pass across.

Beautiful song. And it's so new and so refreshing each time I play/enjoy it
by Marrit on 4/3/2012 12:08pm
These lyrics are the worst, seriously. No one should -in any kind of way- publish lyrics this bad, ever. Just don't.. please.
by Artina on 4/24/2012 2:04am

It takes only the wise to decode the hidden meaning of the lyrics. It is not just as you see the words but the interpretation of the song is in the voice and the melody. If you understand life you understand the song.
by agbonma idahosa on 5/15/2012 3:22pm
the song is timeless! Trust me i still jump off my seat to sing and dance to its tune,and more,it means my name 'life is good'

by Renz on 8/20/2012 12:42am
This is a fun song. I love the chorus and the beat.
by Tjhai on 8/31/2012 3:48am
Why don't you all focus on this part:
"So after all is said and done
I know I'm not the only one
Life indeed can be fun, if you really want to"
It's so true. Even if it may sound silly, but indeed, she's really not the one. So I think the message is, don't be too afraid of this life (like superstitious thing in this song). Many peoples are too afraid and it brings no good to their life. Rather, if we want to, the life indeed can be fun. That's the point I got.
by michael on 9/26/2012 8:35am
it is has the best vocals so far
by Celia on 9/27/2012 8:36am
Gosh !!!
I'd love this song but after paying more attention to the lyrics... god its bullshit!
"I don't want to see a ghost,
It's a sight that I fear most
I'd rather have a piece of toast"

Por Favor !

by Ska Pig on 1/8/2013 10:34pm

I don't like ghosts too! They are scary, man!

And besides that, if I had the choice, I would also have a piece of toast instead too!
by Lampardvich on 1/11/2013 10:15am
I believe that many people will get inspired by this melodious music
by Peguy LIONGI on 2/14/2013 12:27am
I really don't know what to say about this fabulous song, but I have noticed that; those kinds of songs appear may be afert a century. believe it or not, that lady was inspired and mervelous;;;;; I love here so much; she is fantastic.

i'm in love with this song
by Kirsty Thomas on 8/17/2013 3:26am
One of my fave songs ever. I've downloaded it from iTunes. When u sit & read the lyrics they do seem shit. However, who gives a flying frog!!? You don't notice when listening to the song. It's awesome ' it works. No weirder than Tori Amos lyrics. Des'ree has amazing voice & Tori is a fucking genius.
by Rafa on 9/1/2013 7:08am
Excelent and greatest song, I love it!, regards and take care
by Nytrydr on 7/28/2015 9:06pm
Whilst I have to admit I quite like this song as a whole, the lyrics are testament to the fact that you don't have to be a talented lyricist to write a catchy hook. Bad poetry has been and will be around for a long time, but, couple it with a catchy tume and theres your Brit award and a couple million quidbucks. Current pop is littered with great examples of this. Besides. Toast IS yummy. You have to concede that. Y so sillyness?
by VINFEL on 3/16/2017 2:04pm
I really love this makes me feel yoghuty and chocolaty....oh life oh lifeeeeee
