Wonderful
(Hey! Ain't life wonderful?)
(Isn't it wonderful, so wonderful, wonderful, etc)
(Isn't everything wonderful?)
(Isn't it wonderful now?)

I close my eyes when I get too sad
I think thoughts that I know are bad
Close my eyes and I count to ten
Hope it's over when I open them

I want the things that I had before
Like a Star Wars poster on my bedroom door
I wish I could count to ten
And make everything be wonderful again

I hope my mom and I hope my dad
Will figure out why they get so mad
I hear them scream, I hear them fight
They say bad words that makes me wanna cry

Close my eyes when I go to bed and I
Dream of angels who make me smile
I feel better when I hear them say that
Everything will be wonderful someday

Promises mean everything
When you're little and the world's so big
I just don't understand how
You can smile with all those tears in your eyes
Tell me everything is wonderful now

Please don't tell me everything is wonderful now

I go to school and I run and play
I tell the kids that it's all okay
I laugh a lot so my friends won't know
That when the bell rings I just don't want to go home

Go to my room and I close my eyes
I make believe that I have a new life
I don't believe you when you say that
Everything will be wonderful someday

Promises mean everything
When you're little and the world is so big (so big)
I just don't understand how
You can smile with all those tears in your eyes
When you tell me everything is wonderful now

No, no
I don't want to hear you tell me
Everything is wonderful now
No, no
I don't want to hear you tell me
Everything is wonderful now

I don't want to hear you say
That I will understand someday
No, no, no, no
Don't want to hear you say
That you both have grown in a different way
No, no, no

No, I don't want to meet your friend
And I don't want to start over again
I just want my life to be the same
Just like it used to be

Somedays I hate everything
I hate everything
Everyone and everything
Please don't tell me everything is wonderful now

No
Please don't tell me everything is wonderful now
Please don't tell me everything is wonderful now
Don't tell me everything is wonderful now, no
Please don't tell me everything is wonderful now

Yeah, yeah everything is wonderful now
Oh yeah, everything is wonderful now
Everything is wonderful now
Now, now
Everything is wonderful now
