XTC - 1000 Umbrellas

rate me

One thousand umbrellas<br>Upturned couldn't catch all the rain<br>That drained out of my head<br>When you said we were<br>Over and over I cried<br>'til I floated downstream<br>To a town they call<br>Misery oh oh misery<br>Misery oh oh misery<br><br>And one million teacups<br>I bet couldn't hold all the wet<br>That fell out of my eyes<br>When you fell out with me<br>Now I'm crawling the wallpaper<br>That's looking more like a roadmap<br>To misery oh oh misery<br><br>How can you smile and forecast<br>Weather's getting better<br>And you'll soon forget her<br>If you let the sunshine come through<br>How can you smile and forecast<br>Weather's getting better<br>If you never let a girl rain all over you<br>And just when I thought that my vista was golden in hue<br>One thousand umbrellas opened to spoil the view<br><br>One million salt seas<br>Recalled from school atlas<br>Alas would be filled to the brim<br>Sunny jim couldn't jump it<br>How can I be pleased<br>When I'm handed the keys<br>To a town they call misery<br>Oh oh misery<br><br>So with a mop and a bucket<br>I'll just say forget her<br>And carry on sweeping up<br>Where I've been weeping<br>The jesters will creep in<br>To strike down the newly crowned monarch<br>Of misery oh oh misery<br><br>How can you smile and forecast<br>Weather's getting better<br>And you'll soon forget her<br>If you let the sunshine come through<br>How can you smile and forecast<br>Weather's getting better<br>If you never let a girl rain all over you<br>Just when I thought that my skies were a june july blue<br>One thousand umbrellas opened<br>Two thousand umbrellas opened<br>Ten thousand umbrellas opened to spoil the view
