lyrics

I WAS WALKING DOWN THE STREET ONE DAY WHEN I TRIPPED
I STOPPED FOR A MINUTE, TOOK A BREATH AND LOOKED AROUND FOR A GRIP
AND A RESOLUTION ENTERED MY MIND, I’LL SING A SONG ABOUT THE PEOPLE AROUND, OH

ALLELUIA, THE FRIEND TO THE LEFT IS A NERD, HE SPENDS HIS DAYS LEARNING SCIENCE, READING BOOKS AND DRINKING COFFEE AT NOON
THE WOMAN TO THE RIGHT IS A SLAVE TO A LITTLE DOG THAT’S DRIVING HER INSANE

A MAN JUST STEPPED ON A BUBBLE GUM AS HE LEFT THE TRAIN
ANOTHER MAN FROM THE HOOD WITH SHINY SNICKERS SHOWS OFF HIS CHAINS
I HAD TO TRIP AND FALL TO SEE THEM ALL
THE WORLD IS BIG, AND FULL, AND HAPPY, AND OLD

INSTR. SOLO

I HAD TO TRIP AND FALL TO SEE THEM ALL
THE WORLD IS BIG, AND FULL, AND HAPPY, AND OLD

(SPOKEN WORD)
MAMMA MIA, YOU JUST REALLY KNOW HOW TO LAUGH
WHY ARE THE CLOUDS SO PINK AND THE SUN SO DARK
(SANG)
I’M FEELING DIZZY AND I’M FEELING WEAK
WHY DON’T YOU GET ME SOMETHING COLD TO DRINK

BRIDGE

SOMEBODY SHOOK MY SHOULDER AND TOLD ME TO WAKE UP
I FELT SO CONFUSED, WHERE WAS I AND WHAT WAS UP
A COP CAME UP TO ME AND SAID I WAS ASLEEP
A TREE BRANCH KNOCKED ME OUT IN THE STREET
I THINK I NEED TO SMELL THE ROSES MORE OFTEN
I THINK I NEED TO SMILE AT PEOPLE AND BE SOFTER
I THINK I NEED¡ TO SHED MY SKIN AND WAKE UP FROM MY SLEEP
I’M FEELING DIZZY AND I’M FEELING WEAK
WHY DON’T YOU GET ME SOMETHING COLD TO DRINK

(SANG)
MAMMA MIA, YOU JUST REALLY KNOW HOW TO LAUGH
WHY ARE THE CLOUDS SO PINK AND THE SUN SO DARK
I HAD TO TRIP AND FALL TO SEE THEM ALL
THE WORLD IS BIG, AND BLUE, AND HAPPY, AND SMALL
