Getting Some Fun Out of Life

Maybe we do the right thing
Maybe we do the wrong
Spending each day
Wending our way along

But when we want to sing, we sing
When we want to dance, we dance
You can do your betting, we’re getting
Some fun out of life

This song written by Edgar Leslie and Joe Burke was recorded by Billie Holiday in 1937. Then decades later Madeleine Peyroux recorded it. Both of their sultry voices do right by the sweet-tart lyrics. Nobody says wending anymore… it’s just an old-fashioned way of saying you’re traveling along. Get some fun out of life today by listening.
