Sammy Davis, Jr.: A Lot Of Living To Do

video
from 12/13/06 from pseudo-intellectualism

I was listening to my Rat Pack collection CD in the car and Sammy Davis Jr's rendition of this has got me playing it over and over at full blast. An incredible arrangement by Marty Paich. I said before, Sammy was overrated in the past, very underrated now.
There are girls just ripe for some kissin'
And I mean to kiss me a few!
Oh those girls don't know what they're missin',
I got a lot of living to do!
And there's wine all ready for tastin'
And there's Cadillacs all shiny and new!
Gotta move, cause time is a-wastin',
There's such a lot of livin' to do!
There's music to play,
Places to go and people to see!
Everything for you and me!
Life's a ball
If only you know it
And it's all just waiting for you
You're alive,
So come on and show it
There's such a lot of livin'
I got a living to do
Man, there's such a lot of living to do
Why there's music to play,
Places to go and people to see!
Everything for you and me!
Life's a ball
If only you know it
And it's all just waiting for you
You're alive,
So come on and show it
There's such a lot of livin'
Such a lot of livin'
Such a lot of livin' to do
