Short, Short Life

Tune: There's a Long, Long Trail

It's a short, short life we live here,
So let us laugh while we may
With a song for every moment
Of the whole bright day.
What's the use of being gloomy,
Oh, what's the use of our tears,
When we know a mummy's had no fun
For at least three thousand years?
