Lyrics

 

Everything’s Coming Up Roses

 

 

 

 

 

The war effort just got sexier

 

The defence ministry hired pretty ladies

 

To inspect the munitions

 

Conditions behind the barricades

 

Deteriorated daily

 

 

 

Men in uniform can't wait for their

 

Walking papers

 

 their next drunken caper

 

The government says lasting peace is a tall order

 

 

 

The light crawls through closing windows

 

Inhabitants laugh about being a solitary thorn that

 

Pricks our noses

 

But everything's coming up roses

 

But everything's coming up roses

 

 

 

Here on the home front men

 

Keep dying on the inside

 

Joseph struggled for every last dime

 

During his formative years he shed many

 

Self-pitying tears

 

 

 

During happy hour one July

 

He announced he was joining the fight

 

If I  stay in this place

 

I can never win the horse race within the rat race,

 

 

 

in her dreams at night

 

She heard agonizing screams, she couldn't

 

Plug her ears once the sound of bullets came

 

 calling, the application form made no mention

 

of his allergy to pollen

 

 

 

It took half a decade for Mary to gain perspective

 

Now she has a clever reply for her embroiled guy,

 

 life is for the living  it doesn't matter if you give

 

and get love in such small doses

 

Because everything's coming up roses

 

Everything's coming up roses

 

 

 

On his first leave a mosquito

 

Flew into her mojito

 

The pained look on his face told her

 

The love of her life was incognito

 

 

 

It took a while to recover from post

 

Traumatic stress, yet they've chosen

 

 the path to revival wisely, everything's

 

 coming up, everything's coming up roses
