Life Is Sweet          
             

It's a pity, It's a crying shame 
He pulled you down again 
How painful it must be 
To bruise so easily 
Inside 

It's a pity, it's a downright crime 
It happens all the time 
You wanna stay little daddy's girl 
You wanna hide from the viscous world... 
Outside 

Don't cry, you know the tears will do no good 
So dry your eyes 
Your daddy, he's the iron man 
Battle ship wrecked on dry land 
Your mamma, she's a bitter bride 
She'll never be satisfied 
You know, and that's not right 

But don't cry 
You know the tears will do no good 
So dry your eyes 
They told you life is hard 
Misery from the start, it's dull 
It's slow, it's painful 
But I tell you life is sweet 
In spite of the misery 
There's so much more, be grateful 
Well, who do you believe 
Who will you listen to, who will it be 
Because it's high time that you decide 
In your own mind 

I've tried to comfort you 
I tried to tell you to be patient 
That they are blind and they can't see 
Fortune gonna come one day 
It all gonna fade away 
Your daddy the war machine 
And your momma the long and suffering 
Prisoner of what she can not see 

For they told you life is hard 
Misery from the start, it's dull, 
It's slow, it's painful 
But I tell you life is sweet 
In spite of the misery 
There's so much more, be grateful 
So who will you believe 
Who will you listen to 
Who will it be 
Because it's high time that you decide 
It's time to make up your own 
Your own state of mind 

They told you life is long 
Be thankful when it's done 
Don't ask for more, be grateful 
But I tell you life is short 
Be thankful, because before you know it 
It will be over 
Because life is sweet 
Life is all so very short 
Life is sweet 
And life is all so very short 
Life is sweet 
Life is sweet
