Subject: Lyr Req: 'Big Ol Life' Rani Arbo
From: GUEST,blsmith
Date: 28 Dec 12 - 09:02 PM

I recently heard and purchased a song done by Rani Arbo and Daisy Mayhem called Big Ol Life. I have not been able to find the lyrics via internet search, so I am trying to write them down as I listen (repeatedly!). Here is what I have so far .... and you will notice in the 4th stanza (starting "Love me tender, love me not ...") that there are a few words that I know I cannot get. Anyone want to help? I may have missed a few other things. Listen to the song here ..... nice tune, cool, interesting lyrics.

Thanks,

Bruce

Big Ol Life
Rani Arbo and Daisy Mayhem

Glass half empty, glass half full,
Depends on the day, depends on the fool
Who's asking, and the fool who replies.
He's going to drink it up anyway,
Doesn't really matter what you say,
Raise your cup to another day,
In this big ol life.

Door wide open, door closed down
Depends on the moon, depends on the clown
In your head, waving all those signs.
So skip the wherefors and shouldn't be's
Head straight for the exit please,
Step on to the path you made,
In this big ol life.

Sun comes up, sun goes down
On every small forgotten town
Shining on every soul,
spilling light in every dark hole.
There ain't a thing you got to do,
to let that sun shine down on you,
Step right in to this big ol life.

Love me tender, love me not
Depends on the flower, [depends on the ------
-------------- petals and the mirror? inside.]

Are you ready to rise and shine?
Are you ready to say be mine?
If you are then lets take a ride,
In this big ol life.

Are you ready to rise and shine?
Are you ready to say be mine?
If you are then lets take a ride,
In this big ol life.

If you are then lets take a ride
In this big ol life.

What I got, and I'll just write the whole thing over. My changes/comments in purple.

Love me tender, love me not
Depends on the heart pluckin' petals
And the mirror inside

Here's how I hear it:

Depends on the flower, depends on your heart
Pluckin'
petals and the mirror inside.

By the way, although the singer pronounces it "Big ol' life", both the song title and the album title are "Big Old Life."

Hey good folks! Glad you're enjoying the song. Just to help (2 years after this post, but I just saw it...)

Depends on the heart pluckin' petals, and the mirror inside.

You're going to drink it up anyway (not He's)

Skip the wherefores and shouldn't we's (not we)

Step right in to this big old life...the "to" is there, just swallowed a bit on this take.

Peace, Rani

Here's a new copy incorporating the corrections supplied by Rani.


BIG OLD LIFE
As recorded by Rani Arbo and Daisy Mayhem on "Big Old Life" (2007).

Glass half empty, glass half full,
Depends on the day, depends on the fool
Who's askin', and the fool who replies.
You're gonna drink it up anyway.
Doesn't really matter what you say.
Raise your cup to another day
In this big old life.

Door wide open, door closed down,
Depends on the moon, depends on the clown
In your head, wavin' all those signs.
So skip the wherefores and shouldn't we's.
Head straight for the exit, please,
Step on to the path you made,
In this big old life.

Sun comes up, sun goes down
On every small forgotten town
Shining on every soul,
Spilling light in every dark hole.
There ain't a thing you got to do,
To let that sun shine down on you,
Step right in to this big old life.

Love me tender, love me not,
Depends on the flower, depends on the heart
Pluckin' petals and the mirror inside.
Are you ready to rise and shine?
Are you ready to say be mine?
If you are, then let's take a ride
In this big old life.

Yeah, are you ready to rise and shine?
Are you ready to say be mine?
If you are, then let's take a ride
In this big old life.
If you are, then let's take a ride
In this big old life.
