Don't ask me why I'm running out of laughter
There's tears in these eyes, not happy ever after
And I thought it was plain to see
And I thought the whole world could be
And I thought we'd be happy ever after.

You could say that I'm living in a pipe dream
It's just looking back, things are never what they seem
And I hope I can safely say
And I hope most things go my way
And I hope they'll be happy ever after.

Down in Southern Africa no happy ever after
Not now, but soon forever
While they're sitting comfortably
In that white winter city
How can we be happy ever after?

Um by yay
Est ce le South Africa

So don't ask me why I'm running out of laughter
There's tears in these eyes, not happy ever after.
And I thought it was plain to see
And I thought that maybe you and me
And I thought we'd be happy ever after.

Um by yay
Um by yay
Um by yay
Est ce le South Africa
