Lush life means a life of luxury with an exciting night life, a sophisticated outlook, and plenty of partying. It may have originated with the song Billy Strayhorn wrote for Duke Ellington's band in the 1930s in which he speaks of a weariness of "jazz and cocktails," and "women with sullen and sad grey faces" after a love affair has gone bad. That song, along with "Take The A Train," became classics for Ellington.

Lush Life means the "drunk life", considering one of the definitions of lush is drunk. Also, it could possibly mean you are stoned.
