It's a pity, it's a crying shame
He pulled you down again
How painful it must be
To bruise so easily inside

It's a pity, it's a downright crime
It happens all the time
You want to stay your little daddy's girl
You want to hide from a vicious world outside

Don't cry
You know the tears will do no good, so dry your eyes

Oh, your daddy, he's the iron man
Battleship wrecked on dry land
Your mama, she's a bitter bride, she'll never be satisfied
Do you know? And that's not right

But don't cry
You know the tears will do no good, so dry your eyes

Oh, they told you life is hard, misery from the start
It's dull, it's slow, it's painful
But, I'll tell you life is sweet inspite of the misery
There's so much more to be grateful

Well, who do you believe?
Who will you listen to? Who will it be?
'Cause it's high time that you decide
In your own mind

I've tried to comfort you
I've tried to tell you to be patient
They are blind
And they can't see

Fortune gonna come one day, all gonna fade away
Your daddy, the war machine
And your momma, the long and suffering
Prisioner of what she cannot see

For they told you life is hard, misery from the start
It's dull, it's slow, it's painful
But, I'll tell you life is sweet inspite of the misery
There's so much more, be grateful

So, who will you believe?
Who will you believe? Who will it be?
Because it's high time that you decide
It's time to make up your own, your own state of mind

Oh, they told you that life is long, be thankful when it's done
Don't ask for more, be grateful
But, I'll tell you life is short be thankful
Because before you know it will be over

'Cause life is sweet
Life is, oh, so very short, life is sweet
And life is, oh, so very short
Life is sweet

And life is sweet
And life is sweet
