  • 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
    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
