All For The Best Lyrics
Your life is bad, your prospects are worse
Your wife is sighing, crying,
And your olive tree is dying,
Temples are graying, and teeth are decaying
And creditors weighing your purse...
Your mood and your robe
Are both a deep blue
You'd bet that Job
Had nothin' on you...
Don't forget that when you get to
Heaven you'll be blessed..
Yes, it's all for the best...
Some men are born to live at ease, doing what they please,
Richer than the bees are in honey
Never growing old, never feeling cold
Pulling pots of gold from thin air
The best in every town, best at shaking down
Best at making mountains of money
They can't take it with them, but what do they care?
They get the center of the meat, cushions on the seat
Houses on the street where it's sunny..
Summers at the sea, winters warm and free
All of this and we get the rest...
But who is the land for? the sun and the sand for?
You guessed! It's all for the best...
(repeat some men or go back to the beging and do up to it's all for the best...)
Yes, it's all for the.....you must never be all distressed..)
Yes, it's all for the.....( all your wrongs will be redressed..)
Yes, it's all for the.....(someone's got to be oppressed!)
Yes, it's all for the best!!!
