Life is Like a Rocket (New Version)

Music Influence:
Kenny Rogers "The Gambler", Paul Simon's "The Boxer"
Content influence:'
Mickey Rourke on Jimmy Kimmel
David Letterman's tribute to 
Robbin Williams

Life is not a box of chocolates
It's more like a rocket
Takes all your strength
Getting off the ground

You feel alone in the corner
You ain't go not choice
Just when you give up,
You hear a voice

Hit the ball like Mickey Mantel
Come back Mickey Rourke
Soar high Commerce Comet
The whole world's missing Mork

Mend your friendships
Mend your fences
Strengthen your defenses
Batten down the hatches
And sail in to the storm

Don't go picking fights
Pick the battles you can win
Pick the friends you can count on
Time and time again

You do like David Letterman 
You count to ten
You get on up and come on out
Time and time again

Life is like a yo-yo
Going north and going south
Be tough and you remember
No one punches Mickey's mouth

You're a boxer, you're a fighter
You're a wrestler, you're all right dear
You don't just lie there,
You get up off the ground

You only throw a punch
When you don't have a line
You crawl back inch by inch
You let your own star shine

We're missing Mickey Mantle
The whole world's missing Mork
We need more comeback kids
So thank you Mickey Rourke

Life is not a box chocolates
Life's not that sweet
Life's a lot about
Getting on your feet

Life's a one way ticket
No refunds or exchange
The best that you can do
Is make it back by making change

Life is like a rocket
Flying to the moon
If you ain't there yet
You'll get there soon

Once you get into the sky
You let that rocket fly!
