everything’s comin’ up roses lyrics – nanci griffith

this life is filled with wonder
this life is full of days not spent
i cannot help but ponder
just what relevance that lends

but everything is comin’ up roses
and i’m pushin’ up daisies
they’ll want roses anyway
oh and everything is comin’ up roses
it’s comin’ up roses every day

i’ve got a heart bent on confusion
i’m punch drunk straight half the time
i’m feelin’ watered down and diluted
still this weathers holdin’ fine

and everything is comin’ up roses
oh and i’m pushin’ up daisies
they’ll want roses anyway
oh and everything is comin’ up roses
it’s comin’ up roses every day

there’s a piece of land in kentucky
my grandfather worked one long hot day
now it’s a flatland black top strip mall
still, i remember what he’d say

it’s everything is comin’ up roses
and when i’m pushin’ up daisies
they’ll want roses anyway
oh and everything is comin’ up roses
it’s comin’ up roses every day

yeah it’s everything is comin’ up roses
and when i’m pushin’ up daisies
they’ll want roses anyway
oh and everything is comin’ up roses
comin’ up roses every day

everyday, buy the dozen, everyday
