lyrics

If I had a hundred years
And I'd neither fortune, fame, nor love nor money
Just time to ponder why we're here
Well in the end I'd still be wondering
Cause fortune favors just the wise
And the wise they favor wondering over knowing
So I kept my eyes trained on the skies
It's how I knew where I was going

And I sang la da da da di di di da di

If I had a hundred lives
And I'd twice todays and three times the tomorrows
I'd have ample time to cry
To ease my mind and weep away my sorrows
'Cause fortune favors just the brave
And the brave they favor fortune over failure
So though the times were dark and grave
I always wore my bright regalia

And I sang la da da da di di di da di

If I had a hundred lives
Through failure famine, blight, and nasty weather
I don't think that I would mind
As long as you and I lived them together
'Cause fortune favors those in love
And the lovers favor living over dying
So we spent our lives saying hello
And left only a lonely moment to say goodbye in

And I sang la da da da di di di da di
