"The Time of Your Life" is a song from the 1998 Disney/Pixar film A Bug's Life, written and performed by Randy Newman. It is featured during the end credits of the film.

An instrumental version of the song was heard in the former Disney California Adventure attraction Heimlich's Chew Chew Train throughout the ride where guests boarded on Heimlich to help him find food to satisfy him.

Lyrics

Was a bug, little bug, hardly there
How he felt, what he dreamed, who could care?
Without any evidence
(His flaws were many)
He was full of confidence
(Some people haven't any)
Didn't have much common sense
(It's highly overrated)
He just knew that he'd come through
It's the time of your life so live it well
It's the time of your life so live it well

We may only go 'round one time
As far as I can tell
It's the time of your life so live it well

We may only go 'round this one time
As far as I can tell
(He could be wrong about that)
It's the time of your life
It's the time of your life
It's the time of your life so live it well

(instrumental)

It's the time of your life so live it well
It's the time of your life so live it well

We may only go 'round one time
As far as I can tell
It's the time of your life, so live it well

Like us all, he started small
Then he grew
When the time came he knew what to do
He knew in order to succeed
(They'd have to work together)
He turned a rock into a seed
(And they were changed forever)
Then they had the strength they'd need
(To get through stormy weather)
Do or die, you gotta try
It's the time of your life so live it well
It's the time of your life so live it well

We may only go 'round one time
As far as I can tell
(He could be wrong about that)
It's the time of your life so live it well

Isn't it a bit surprising
How one's fortunes ebb and flow
And only to the enterprising
Does the magic fortune cookie go
Believe me
It's the time of your life so live it well
It's the time of your life so live it well

We may only go 'round one time
As far as I can tell
It's the time of your life
It's the time of your life
It's the time of your life so live it well

Was a bug, little bug, hardly there
How he felt, what he dreamed, who could care?
Without any evidence
(His flaws were many)
He was full of confidence
(Some people haven't any)
Didn't have much common sense
(It's highly over-rated)
He just knew that he'd come through
It's the time of your life so live it well
It's the time of your life so live it well

We may only go 'round this one time
As far as I can tell
(He could be wrong about that)
It's the time of your life
It's the time of your life
It's the time of your life so live it well

Like us all, he started small
Then he grew
When the time came he knew what to do
He knew in order to succeed
(They'd have to work together)
He turned a rock into a seed
(And they were changed forever)
Then they had the strength they'd need
(To get through stormy weather)
Do or die, you gotta try
It's the time of your life so live it well
It's the time of your life so live it well

We may only go 'round one time
As far as I can tell
(He could be wrong about that)
It's the time of your life so live it well

Isn't it a bit surprising
How one's fortunes ebb and flow
And only to the enterprising
Does the magic fortune cookie go
Believe me
It's the time of your life so live it well
It's the time of your life so live it well

We may only go 'round one time
As far as I can tell
It's the time of your life
It's the time of your life
It's the time of your life so live it well
