This is an upbeat toe-tapper, but the cheerful sound masks a bluesy message: watch out for Trojan horses, friends bearing gifts, falling in love, too much good luck. You donít have to be a Cubs fan to know that life can jump up and kick you in the butt. Repeatedly. The best laid plansÖThe message here is that when things inevitably go wrong, youíve just got to dust yourself off, learn from your mistakes, and keep on living life for all you are worth. Just remember: when life seems to be relentlessly handing you lemons, you donít have to eat the danged things. Try a trick play. Something!

Life Is So Strange
You woke up this morning, put your shoes on your feet; feeling good, feeling sweet. A look in the mirror and youíre down with the view. Somebody is waiting for you.

Distracted all day, you canít concentrate. Expecting a call, enduring the wait. Then when it comes, theyíve found some one new. Itís time to move on; what can you do?

In the blink of an eye, everything can change. Canít tell you why life is so strange.

At the drop of a hat, the tide can turn.
If you let down your guard, you might get burned. Stay on your toes, donít miss a trick. When you go for the gold, youíve got to go quick.

Might not change the world, but your response is your call. Itís not so much when you win as when you fall.

Plan what to do, and stick with the plan. Admit what you canít, but do what you can. Aim for the stars, leave it out on the floor. You wonít have to say I could have done more.
