"That's the Life for Me" is a song from James and the Giant Peach. It is sung by all of the insects (without James until the reprise), about how they want to live their lives. It is later reprised by all of the gang, including James. The first version is interrupted near the end because Aunt Spiker and Aunt Sponge are looking for James, but the reprise isn't interrupted at all.

Lyrics

Mr. Centipede: Bright lights, big city That's where we gotta go
Where the food is great and the bugs are so pretty
I'd like to get my arms around a hundred or so
I'd hug 'em, squeeze 'em, hold 'em tight
Sleep all day, dance all night the bright lights and the big city
That's the life for me, yeah That's the life for...

Miss Spider: You little maggot
Have you never seen the moon
Gliding 'cross the western sky
A dead oak tree by the waterside
Putrid vapors rising

Mrs. Ladybug: That sounds lovely, dear. I'm sure we all agree
But I prefer the sunshine
A little park right in the center of the town
Flowers everywhere, children all around me
I'd love it!
Landing on a baby's cheek so warm
It's wonderful

Mrs. Ladybug and The Glowworm: Wonderful

Mrs. Ladybug: That's the life for me
That's the life for me
That's the life, that's the life for me

Mr. Grasshopper: Elegant conversation

Mr. Centipede: Bright lights, big city

Mr. Grasshopper: An elevated point of view

Mr. Centipede: That's where I'd go

Mr. Grasshopper: Intelluctual stimulation

[Spoken]
Mr. Centipede: Yeah, maybe for you.

Mr. Grasshopper: And someone you love to share it with you

Bugs: It would be wonderful, wonderful
That's the life for me

Bugs: That's the life for me

[Spoken]
Mr. Earthworm: You call that a life?

Bugs: That's the life for me

[Spoken]
Mr. Earthworm: It's no pile of dirt

Bugs: That's the life
That's the life
That's the life
That's the life for...

Reprise

Mr. Centipede: That's the life for me

Mrs. Ladybug: That's the life for me

Mr. Grasshopper and Mr. Centipede: That's the life for me

Mrs. Ladybug and Miss Spider: That's the life for me

James: That's the life

All: That's the life
That's the life
That's the life for me!
