Life has a way of confusing us,
Blessing and bruising us
Drink Lchaiim To life

A gift, we seldom are wise enough,
Ever to prize enough
Drink ,Lcahiim, To Life
God would like us to be joyful
Even though our heats lie panting on the floor.
How much more can we be joyful
When there's really something to be joyful for
To Life, To Life, Lchaiim
Lchaiim, Lchaiim, To Life
It gives you something to think about,
Something to drink about,
Drink, Lchaiim, To Life
