    I live like there ain't no tomorrow
    'Cause i want all my

    Maybe it's just me but I've always heard "Live like there ain't no tomorrow" where you have "I live like (rain/reign) on a (barrow)." ???

    I think it's "work like a worm in a furrow" - seems like furrows are the little dirt trenches made by plows, so worm would make sense... just my 2 cents! Certainly sounds like it in Simon's Toronto recording too. Everything else seems right!

    I'm a French Canadian but I speak English.. My son is almost 4 years old and looooooves this song... He doesn't understand the lyrics but know what a cake is...

    He's so adorable cause he keeps saying he wants to play piano with DG...
