      "Life For The Taking"

      People say
      Look at the money they save
      But I don't believe that life's that way
      An old man
      Once looked at me in the eye
      He seemed to sigh
      He seemed to sigh, don't let life pass you by
      No no no, no no no
      He seemed to say
      He wanted me to run
      The old man was once a boy, yeah
      And only young once
      Because it's life for the taking
      Well, it ain't no, ain't no mistakin'
      Well, it's life
      It's my life
      Life for the taking
      I can remember
      When I was just a little kid
      The big boys used to beat me up a bit
      But I learned young that I couldn't cry
      My mamma wasn't gonna be by my side
      She said it's life, life for the taking
      Well, it ain't no, isn't no mistakin'
      Well, it's life
      It's my life
      Life for the taking
      Taking, taking
      Ooh, yeah
      'Cause it's life
      Life for the taking
      Well, it ain't no, ain't no mistakin'
      It's my life
      It's my life, baby
      I wanna, I wanna, yeah
      Life for the taking

          RIP Eddie. He had some great music. His mainstream hits aside, songs like Trinidad, Give me some water,and I wanna go back come to mind as really great songs.

              Liked most of his music too. Makes you wonder how much the environment (drugs, cigs, booze etc) had to do with it. Some it seems can go on and on into late in life abusing their bodies while others can't take much. There were a couple of 95 year old sisters on the news the other day saying they attributed their long life to plenty of beer....and no sex, but that sure sounds like a dull life to me!

                A co-worker died from throat cancer....didn't smoke either but he worked in some refinery units that processed some really nasty stuff. And you know there's no such thing as a perfect seal so you could smell the product being run when you were in the unit. When I hired on, most pumps were still using packing seals but shortly after, the conversion to mechanical seals took place. The packing crap needed to have some leakage to lube the packing, kinda like our old engines from the factory needed for the rear packing seal to live.

                my Uncle Ron died from it too, but he was 85
                he was a pack a day smoker for some 40+ years
                he was a drinker too, not a boozer, but he drank

                sad it takes some really good people

                Eddie Money had a really harsh voice for decades
                I heard him in person many times
                him & one of my cousins (Mike) ran in the same crowd
                in both El Cerrito (near Berkeley) & also a lot in Lafayette areas
                their lifestyles, that weren't good for your long term health
                lots of inhaled powders & drunks

                    If you smoked 'just one' you'd probably be hooked on 3 packs a day and drinking a 12 pack too....:D
