Lyrics

Let me tell you a story of how one can change
Those sour life lemons to sweet lemonade:

I was standing by the stovetop making pancakes
With the family sitting waiting patiently
But just as I began to pour the batter
I was distracted by somebody calling me

By the time that I returned, the pan was smoking
I scraped and scraped and pulled the pancake free
But before I could toss it in the garbage
I saw a face looking back at me

It kind of looked like Elvis, or maybe it was Jesus
Although it could have been Moses or Friar Tuck
There must be a believer somewhere on eBay
So I can get rich and change my luck

I was walking to my office with my coffee
When my arm was smacked by a running SVP
The coffee went flying in slow motion
And it landed with a splash all over me

My clean white shirt suddenly was mocha
I excused myself but as I wriggled free
Just efore I could toss it in the garbage
I saw a face looking back at me

It kind of looked like Elvis, or maybe it was Jesus
Although it could have been Moses or Friar Tuck
I’m sure there’s a believer somewhere on eBay
So I can get rich and change my luck

I was fumbling through my pockets for my car keys
Work was out and I was feeling pretty wound
As I hit reverse I felt a little better
But then I heard that awful crunching sound

I saw my battered iphone on the pavement
Lying where it really shouldn’t be
But before I could toss it in the garbage
I saw a face looking back at me

It was the face of Sauron, or was it L. Ron Hubbard?
Or maybe it was Nixon or Chairman Mao
Although it could have been Reagan or Che Guevara,
And I just stood there and just said “wow!”

It kind of looked like Elvis, or maybe it was Jesus
Although it could have been Moses or Friar Tuck
I’m sure there’s a believer somewhere on eBay
So I can make a bundle. Hey what the heck…
