You can like the life you're living
You can live the life you like

You can even marry Harry
But mess around with Ike

Hannah and Alex:
And that's Good, isn't it?
Grand, isn't it?
Great, isn't it?
Swell, isn't it?
Fun, isn't it?
But nothing stays
In fifty years or so
It's gonna change, you know
But, oh, it's heaven Nowadays
