[Verse 1] I have a mansion, forget the price Ain't never been there, they tell me it's nice I live in hotels, tear out the walls I have accountants pay for it all They say I'm crazy but I have a good time I'm just looking for clues at the scene of the crime Life's been good to me so far [Verse 2] My Maserati does 185 I lost my license, now I don't drive I have a limo, ride in the back I lock the doors in case I'm attacked [Verse 3] I'm making records, my fans they can't wait They write me letters, tell me I'm great So I got me an office, gold records on the wall Just leave a message, maybe I'll call Lucky I'm sane after all I've been through [Bill Szymczyk] Everybody, say I'm cool [Jody Boyer] He's cool! I can't complain, but sometimes I still do Life's been good to me so far [Instrumental Bridge] [Verse 4] I go to parties sometimes until 4 It's hard to leave when you can't find the door It's tough to handle this fortune and fame Everybody's so different, I haven't changed They say I'm lazy but it takes all my time [Bill Szymczyk] Everybody, say oh, yeah [Jody Boyer] Oh, yeah! I keep on goin', guess I'll never know why Life's been good to me so far [Outro] Yeah, yeah, yeah [Spoken Word] Uh oh Here comes a flock of wah-wahs! (Wall of wah-wahs)
