Toast To Living



Here's to life and giving. Make it understood.
Here's to love and living. Lift a glass for good.

Here's to risk and trying. Make it understood.
Here's to win and vying. Lift a glass for good.

Here's to up and shining. Make it understood.
Here's to in and dinning. Lift a glass for good.

Here's to joy and smiling. Make it understood.
Here's to chic and styling. Lift a glass for good.

Here's to come and going. Make it understood.
Here's to have and owing. Lift a glass for good.

Here's to fun and seeing. Make it understood.
Here's to role and being. Lift a glass for good.
