lyrics

EVERYTHING’S GOING TO BE ALL RIGHT

I’m solid with a pack of beautiful losers
Their aspirations may be modest
Some may say we’re soft
But the kindness in their heartbeats
That’s my backbone of drums

We try to play a game of poker with an incomplete deck
Between the booze and the takeaways the kitchen is a wreck

We grumble at the state of the world and the news of the day
When Faye sets fire to the newspaper we laugh through our dismay

We drink and toast each other and dance rings around the table
Sing along to the songs that keep us almost stable (like this one)

It’s gonna be all right, it’s gonna be all right
Everything’s going to be all right

Now there’s a full Moon over Wowtown tonight
And now that William Shatner’s on a real space flight

It’s gonna be all right, it’s gonna be all right
Everything’s going to be all right

Of course we go on and on about how our big dreams got away
Curse the billionaires and gatekeepers that led us all astray

Maybe Elon Musk can spare a few measly pesos
For all us buskers overlooked by the likes of Jeff Bezos?

We raise our glasses to the whistleblowers
and the great seekers of truth
And to the great dental practitioner that fixed Joe’s aching tooth

And at some point we’ll conclude, though we’re not seeing so straight
That there’s a chance we’ll still be winners once we get out of the gate

...

It’s gonna be all right, it’s gonna be all right
Everything’s going to be all right

With your latte daddy and your Bucket Hat
Hangin outside Coco Chanel’s old Flat

Everything’s going to be alright

Now that Priti Patel has met with Little Amal
And Pete the Cat is gonna find his tail

It’s gonna be all right….
Everything’s going to be all right
