lyrics

Ever since I met you there’s been problems
With the world outside our window
All the buses run on time
12 o’clock the churches chime
It seems that everything
Yes, everything...
works

What’s the fireman to do with no fire
What’s the plumber meant to do with no plumbs
And the admiral has nothing to admire
Except the tips of his thumbs

Oh the locksmith he just locks the door
And they’re closing all the hardware stores
‘Cause nobody’s ever needed glue
Ever since I met you

Everything works
You better believe it
Call up all the animals and give ‘em dessert
Yes everything works
Grab your bags we’re leaving now
We’re high above the ceiling now

The grease monkeys and the handy man
Are all sad because they’re getting canned
And the jeweler and the cobbler too
They just sob into their hands

So what’s the gunsmith going to do with no guns
What’s the goldsmith going to do with no Smith
And Mr. Fixit what’s he gonna fix
Oh my, he looks so down
I think he’d like to die
Well let him die

Everything works
You better believe it
Call up all the animals and give ‘em dessert
Yes everything works
Grab your bags we’re leaving

Find the one and watch the world resign
‘Cause everything works just fine
Yes everything works just fine

Ever since I met you there’s been problems
Everyone’s outside our window
They’re just waiting for a sign
That our love will soon stop shining ‘cause
Ever since i met you everything,
And I mean everything works
