Lyrics

Background vocals intro….Life’s Too Short (3-part harmony)
 
Verse- Hey, hey, baby…you look so fine to me
           And I can tell that you like what you see
           ‘Cause you been a-peepin’ my way all night
           So I know that I’m readin’ you right
 
Lift- It’s only a sin…if we end up alone
         So I’m askin’ you now….let’s go home…’cause
 
Chorus- Life is too short (life’s too short) yes it is…to go slow (to go slow, to go slow)
                                        (3-part harmony)                                            (unison)

              And there’s no time (there’s no time)…to lay low (to lay low)      
                                         (3-part harmony)                            (unison)

              So when ya get that feelin’, girl (what a feelin’, oh what a feelin’)… Get good to go…
                                                                                    (unison)

             ‘Cause life’s too short…(to say no) to say no
                                               (3-part harmony) 

 
Ad lib lead over musical interlude/release
 
Verse- Sweet baby…maybe you’re shocked by this stance
            We’ve wined and we’ve dined, felt the music and danced
            So you know…I believe in romance
            But still I’m takin’ a chance
 
Lift- By comin’ on strong…much too fast
         But tonight…let’s forget…the mistakes of the past…’cause
 
Chorus- Life is too short (life’s too short) yes it is…to go slow (to go slow, to go slow)
                                       (3-part harmony)                                              (unison)

              And there’s no time (there’s no time)…to lay low (to lay low)
                                       (3-part harmony)                               (unison)

             So when ya get that feelin’, girl (what a feelin’, oh what a feelin’)…Get good to go…
                                                                                    (unison)

            ‘Cause life’s too short…(to say no) to say no
                                               (3-part harmony)

Bridge- See, if it’s somethin’(somethin’)(u)…that we really want
             Tell me why (why)(h)…must we put up a front

             When happiness (ah)(u-h)…is so hard to find…and

Life is too short (life’s too short)(h)…yes it is…to go slow (to go slow, to go slow)(u)
And there’s no time (there’s no time)(h)…there’s not a minute to spare…to lay low (to lay low)(u)
