Do You Sing on a Roller Coaster?

What has a vertical drop of 418 feet and goes 128 mph? Life is sometimes like a roller coaster. One minute you are slowly chugging up the hill and then the next minute you are plummeting down the other side at breakneck speed with the g-forces pushing you into your seat.
