"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.
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
