It never rains but it pours
Do keep the wolf from the door
I see him sitting in silence
Outside my house
Quiet as a mouse
I tried to buy you roses but all the stars were closed (FH-"Yes... Stars" not "stores" )
And if I had a diamond ring I'd wear it through my nose
But I can't dance and I can't sing
A loser I suppose
So all I have is buttercups
All I have is buttercups
What is wrong with buttercups
Who knows
You said to have and to hold
Do let me in from the cold
I see you sitting in silence
Inside your house
Quiet as a mouse
I tried to buy you roses but all the stars were closed
And if I had a diamond ring I'd wear it through my nose
But I can't dance and I can't sing
A loser I suppose
So all I have is buttercups
All I have is buttercups
What is wrong with buttercups
Who knows
And this could be life as we know it
How can I see if you never show it
I tried to buy you roses
But all the stars were closed
I tried to buy you roses but all the stars were closed
And if I had a diamond ring I'd wear it through my nose
But I can't dance and I can't sing
A loser I suppose
So all I have is buttercups
All I have is buttercups
What is wrong with buttercups
Who knows
Who knows
Who knows
