Here is all I can figure out, can anyone else fill in the blanks??? Please!!

Lifeís not the French Riviera
Believe me
Lifeís not a charity ball
It isnít all a great big bed of roses
Itís not like show biz
But the main thing
Blah blah blah blah blah

Were not the people
Blah blah blah blah blah
Believe me
We know were doing ok
Ok we may be blessed and wealthy
But then again weíre young and healthy
And anyone whoís young and healthy knows
That thatís the way
The traffic flows
Itís only
Living
Itís a living

Life's not,
the French Riviera,

all a great, big, bed of roses,
it's not like show biz,
but the main thing I suppose is,
We're not the people who...??????
believe me, we know we're doing okay,
ok we may be less than wealthy,
but then again we're young and healthy,
and anyone who's young and healthy knows,
that that's the way,
the traffic flows,
we've no misgivings,
it's a living.


Can anyone help with the ??????

Life's not, the French Riviera.
Believe me.
Life's not, a charity ball.
It isn't,
all a great big, bed of roses,
it's not like show biz,
but the main thing I propose is:
(We--are-not-fakin-it)We're not the people to worry, believe me.
(We--are-gonna make it)We know we're doing okay,
OK we, may be less than wealthy.
But then again we're young and healthy.
And anyone who's young and healthy knows,
that that's the way...
the traffic flows.
It's a living.

Cool This is it

THESE are the REAL lyrics to It's A Living/Making A Living..........

Life's not
the French Riviera
Believe me
Life's not
A charity ball
It isn't
all a great big bed of roses
It's not like showbiz
But the main thing I suppose is.....

(Were- not- fakin' -it; backup) We're not the people on Broadway
Believe me
(It's real, but better than joining -the- navy; backup) But we know we're having a life
Although we may be blessed and wealthy
But then a-gain were young and healthy
And any-one who's young and healthy knows
that that's the way
the traffic flows
**
It's a living

**indicates the two lines of lyrics from extended version, but are difficult to decipher

Life's not the French Riviera, believe me, life's not, a charity ball.
It isn't all a great big bed of roses, it's not like showbiz, but the main thing I suppose isÖ
We're not the people you envy, believe me, we know we're doing okay.
We may be less than wealthy, but better yet, we're young and healthy,
and anyone who's young and healthy knows that that's the way the traffic flows.
We've no misgivings, It's a living.


(from the Gail Edwards, "Dot", website)

That's not including the back-up vocals sung over two of the lines. I think they're the same as noted in a previous message.

We're not the people that deny fate
We know we're doing okay

But there's another vocal
That says MEEEEEEE

It's hard because there's 2 simultaneous lines.
Apparently one says we're not the people you envy, the other says something about "deny fate" I guess I crossed them

Okay so while one vocal says
We're not the people you envy, another says
"Me..... I deny fate
Me......" And I don't know this line but i think it's 'im born' something. Or maybe it's that line about Broadway, I don't know but since the first line is I deny fate, I think it has to be a statement about how you build it yourself.
Hope that helps
