Lyrics

Drop dead it doesn't matter what she said
It only hurts when I laugh she said
Sometimes its never a crime to spend the day in bed
She made certain that the curtains were red to dream better by the light they would shed
She leaned back, tilted her head and this is what she said
You can't win! Think it over again
I can't win! Look at the trouble I'm in
We can't win! And we're stuck here together
Yeah I hope it will last forever
Don't ever dare to hope he said
So I'm never let down too bad

I know there's nowhere to go so I'll just stay here instead
He knew better than to pull on a thread
They unravel like the thoughts in his head

He looked out, it filled him with dread and this is what he said
You can't win! Think it over again
I can't win! Look at the trouble I'm in
We can't win! And we're stuck here together
Yeah I hope it will last forever
With good books and looks on their side and hearts bursting with national pride
They sang songs and went along for the ride and the other side complied
They said "Hey man where do you reside?" and "Could it be Mother Superior lied?"
And "Is it possible too many have died?" it's only natural to reply
You can't win! Think it over again
I can't win! Look at the trouble I'm in
We can't win! And we're stuck here together
Yeah I hope it will last forever
