Life is a picnic - sure hate to miss it
Love is the ticket - sure hate to miss it


Lyrics:
Picnic © 1995 Rich & Flo Newman (BMI)

In a house full of broken chairs
Still gonna sit down anywhere
In a room full of broken hearts
Still gonna fall in love
A room full of broken glass
Still gonna drive it much too fast
Where fear has set its trap
Folly has to laugh

(Chorus)
Life is a picnic sure hate to miss it
Love is the ticket sure hate to miss it
For all we know this is just a side show to the main event
But sometimes we get lost searching for that big big tent.

So nice under that oak
'Til the bees start dive bombing your coke
And your neighborhood Noah
Is building a funny looking boat
That bear that is chasing you
Would even make Yogi shake with fear
Aud they tell me your best friend
Just disappeared

Life is ... For all we know ...

He spent his whole life
Barking up the wrong tree
But don't scold him too hard
There were no other trees in his yard

Though we're born without wings
Still gonna wanna try to fly
Without a trace of fins
Still gonna learn to swim
With just our vestigial tails
Still gonna always climb and swing
We so love to play the game
That we hate to see it end

In a house full ... For all we know

(Bridge)
Here's a nice spot down by the water's edge
Spread out the blanket, spread on the mustard
Pass the saIt, Pass the lifeguard test
Pass the cemetary, hold your breath
Hold that thought, count to ten
Count me in.


Genre: upbeat, with a slight melancholy undertone, rock, pop, easy listening, kids/family, alternative, ac (adult contemporary)

About the Song
"Life is a picnic. Sure hate to miss it!" ...
The meaning of life is considered through this lyrical dance alluding to philosophical & metaphysical imagery. No one has the right answer, no matter how authoritative they might sound. The best we can do is to learn to make the most of it, and hope that our collective hunches approach some kind of knowing.
