Die Mannequin – Candide lyrics
Stop the wrecking ball
Are you getting off?
This course in melodrama
Wake me when it's over
Thin skin we're whipped again
They're merciless
Flag wavers prey and prosper
Escape with me father
Come on, come on

You and I have been around
Beaten up, run out of town
Don't say

"God's planned the world we live in,
Take what you can get, " it's written

Earth shakes and waters rise
A plague hits, my lover dies
And you say

"Best of all possible worlds
Get by while it all unfurls"

Syphilis, aren't you sick of this
Give me a hand
To the taking back of our fate
Believe in another
There's a little patch of land there
Just up ahead
Slow and steady we can prosper
Trot on with me father
Come on, come on

You and I have been around
Beaten up, run out of town
Don't say

"God's planned the world we live in,
Take what you can get, " it's written

Earth shakes and waters rise
A plague hits, my lover dies
And you say

"Best of all possible worlds
Get by while it all unfurls"

This land needs tiling
Come on and help out
The pirate swine
We'll bluff and cop out
Your... Worlds just burn out

You and I have been around
Beaten up, run out of town
Don't say

"God's planned the world we live in,
Take what you can get, " it's written

Tragic comic repartee
This schlep has had it's day
I say

Get by or you're a goner
Hands on and we'll get stronger
Get by or you're a goner
Hands on and we'll get stronger

Oh...
The water has spat us out
Coast is clear again
Hush up now
And don't get bored
Work away
We're on the mend
