Pearls Of Happiness

Patrick Cannell 2017
My lover left me with an hour glass
Now I'm just waiting for the seconds to pass
And may all your cares be as none.

My lover left me without any funds,
She spent it all on chateau blanc and cream buns
And may all your cares be as none.

And may your miseries turn into pearls of happiness.

My lover started her own rumour mill,
She bought a hatchet and she sent me the bill
And may all your cares be as none.

My friends ignore me and they won't say why,
I know it's all because of fanciful lies
And may all your cares be as none.

And may your miseries turn into pearls of happiness.

I'll write you a letter to make things better
And better they'll be than previously.
I'll send you a postcard, that's if the coast guard
Can come and save me from the sea of misery.
