This is the life

This is the life was de eerste kennismaking van Nederland met de Schotse zangeres Amy MacDonald. Ze schreef het nummer zelf en had er in vele Europese landen een nummer 1 hit mee, zo ook in Nederland in juni 2008. Het zou zelfs de bestverkochte single van heel 2008 worden en de platina status bereiken.

Songtekst:

Oh the wind whistles down, the cold dark street tonight
and the people they were dancing, to the music vibe
And the boys chase the girls, with the curls in their hair
And the shy tormented youth sit way over there
And the songs they get louder each one better than before

Chorus
And you're singing the songs, thinking this is the life
and you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
where you gonna go, where you gonna go
where you gonna sleep tonight
And you're singing the songs, thinking this is the life
and you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
where you gonna go, where you gonna go
where you gonna sleep tonight, where you gonna sleep tonight

So you're heading down the road, in your taxi for four
And you're waiting outside Jimmy's front door
But nobody's in and nobody's home till four
So you're sitting there with nothing to do
Talking about Robert Riger and his motley crew.
and where you're gonna go and where your gonna sleep tonight.

Chorus
