This song is perfect for Life Insurance commercials and I’m sure Joe Walsh must have been approached about using it before. This is truly how I feel and a good snapshot of my life right now – LIFE’S BEEN GOOD. I met a friend for lunch whom I hadn’t seen for 10 years last night. And we went through all the people we knew and through the list of what ever happened to’s and so on. When you hear that someone you knew, who was strong as an ox and so full of life, died of brain cancer…. it’s sobering. There were so many other people that were having difficult times in one way or another.

It made me realize that money is the easiest thing to replace. You can’t replace love, companionship, having kids, a good marriage, family and healthy parents…. So it’s nice to know that my life insurance company has my back on that part. And it’s interesting now because out of curiosity now I ask almost everyone who they have their life insurance with. To me it tells me something about people that you think you know, or knew. But those who think it’s something they don’t need or will scoop up later, they’re most likely in for an unpleasant surprise.

There’s a difference now in my step though because I can walk down the street basically assured in a way that I never was before. If I save a half a million or a million dollars in my life to pass on that’s great. If I live into my 80’s even better. But if I don’t, it’s nice to know I win that way too.


I have a policy, forget the price.
And since I got it, I’m feeling nice
I’ll a long time, wear out the walls.
Ain’t got no stress now, paid for it all.

They say I’m happy and I have a good time.
I’m just living my life cause I’m in my prime
Life Insurance been good so far.

My blood pressure is 120 over 85.
Don’t need a car so, I never drive.
I take the F Train, ride in the back.
Get out on Wall Street, This Dad is the Mack
I wrote a play, my friends they can’t wait.
They ask for tickets, tell me I’m great.
So I got me an office, support staff and all.
Whole life or term, just give me a call.

Lucky I’m here after all I’ve been through.
(Everybody say Oh yeah, …..He’s cool)
I can’t complain but sometimes I still do.
Life’s been good to me so far

I bug my managers, sometimes everyday
They see me coming, have to hear what I say.
It’s tought to handle this talent and fame.
Everybody’s so different, I haven’t changed.

I’ve got my policy now I’ve got it made
(Everybody say oh, yeah…..OH,YEAH)
If something happens to me my family gets paid.

Life Insurance has been good to me so far. (yeah,yeah,yeah)

Now here’s the real thing from Joe Walsh live from Wembley Stadium in England.
