lyrics

Why not live this life while you're still livin
Why not do the best you can with what you've been given
And for the things you don't have, all I can say
Is that you probably didn't need them anyway
With a smile on my face I've resolved to say "why not"

Why not (why not)
Why not (why not)
Why not be the best you that you can be
Why not (why not)
Why not (why not)
Why not be the best you that you can be

We'll these things I say to you are true, in fact
Spent half my life at the bottom of a bottle of Jack
And every night at about quarter past three
I'd stumble my way out into the street
Till the day the little birdie said to me,
"Sometimes you gotta be content to simply be,"
As he sang from a perch up in his tree, "why not?"

Why not (why not)
Why not (why not)
Why not be the best you that you can be
Why not (why not)
Why not (why not)
Why not be the best you that you can be

Why spend you're whole life just worrying about the future
There ain't nobody here who can change your life but you sir
And even if I run out of things to say, I'm gonna keep on singing this anyway
With a smile of my face I've resolved to say why not

Why not (why not)
Why not (why not)
Why not be the best you that you can be
Why not (why not)
Why not (why not)
Why not be the best you that you can be
