Well you say you've got everything you wanted
All your beds are full and your houses are haunted
And everything you need, well you got it on credit
There's nothing we can think and you haven't said it

But something tells me that everything is gonna change
When your shares hit low and the world starts to rearrange
And when it does I know that
You won't be where it's at

You better learn
The facts of life

I guess that no-one ever took you aside
And pointed out the difference between black and white
And now it seems that role has fallen to me
Which is kinds strange when you consider who you want to be
And you come you don't know
How low you'll have to go
To realize the facts of life

You're too old to learn your ABCs
And it's much more sinister than the birds and the bees
You know I told you it was, didn't I?

So now you're dead buried and neglected
And you're learning much more than you ever expected
No-one can explain your heart attack
Now everyone's bringing up baby behind your back

Bet you wish you'd listened close
Instead of taking an overdose
Bet you wish you knew
The facts of life
The facts of life
