I am looking for a song (I have no clip) that was probably played in the late 80's maybe early 90.

It had the lyrics
"We learn to live with a little pain my dear, it was a way of life...no not the best I'm sure."

That's all I can remember. I thought it may have been by Images in Vogue, but I have not been able to find this track by them yet.

Does anyone know the title and/or artist for this track?

Pretty sure that is "Way of Life" by the Puppets.

You will find this song on the CD entiltled" Hardest Hits Volume 1" which is a very rare CD. Last one sold on eBay was $100.00US. There are two tracks on this CD with an edited version as well. I have the CD and the vinyl came out on quality records. A rare song put out by the band " the Puppets".

Thanks to all for the input....I will search for the HH Vol. 1 Turns out I have Vols 2 & 3, so will look for Vol 1.

The reason the HHv1 is so expensive is that there were only 5000 put out and they could not reprint it due to a copyright dispute (didn't get all the rights that they should have for the first run). I sold a copy on eBay a couple of years ago for ~$200. If you haven't been able to find a copy yet, post an email address here.

WLIR in NY used to play The Puppets. Tremendous song. What do I need to do to hear it again?

please contact me for the song

Definitely Way Of Life by The Puppets, on a brown & beige label called Orbit. I guess mid to late 80's. One of my favorite tunes. If you like this.., you'll probably love a song called "Slang Teacher" by Wide Boy Awake & "A Letter From A Far" by B-Movie. Good luck !!

Does anyone have a mp3 copy of this song?

1990ish: “Have you seen a UFO said the scientist on the radio / All the things we knew before, well they don’t mean a thing no more / Let us know”
1989ish: “My name is Bill Johnson, I work in Wisconsin I work in a factory there / Hey, What’s your name? I said my name is....”

Lindsay the song you are looking for is Yon Yonson by the Dave Howard Singers it actually came out here in the UK in 1987... and Yon works in the lumberworks ...
