Lyrics

see you later alligator

Written By: nicholas knight

See you later alligator

Verse 1
She wrote love on her arms on the day that she died
To prove it’s not hate that causes suicide
She took out her pen and put ink to the paper
Described the bad nights and the father that raped her

Break
Verse 2
She wrote out her letter 3 pages in length
Full of self-doubt and none of her strengths
She filled up her papers til she came to the end
Then signed her postscripts ill see you someday again

Chorus
The moon wont stop shining and th sun will still set
The only thing that changes is your list of regrets
When you come from a family of money and fools
Everyone seems so stable especially you

Verse 3
She picked up her script from the local drug store
Counted out 42 and threw the rest on the floor
She took a single dose for every year of her life
42 years here now they’ve all said good-bye

Break
Verse 4
She washed it all down with her favorite wine
a Meraux château from 1989
She took her last sip of that riche flavored red
Dropped the empty bottle then laid to rest her head

Chorus

Verse 5
She hadn’t been seen since late Friday night
She was found decomposed on the 1st of July
35 years since her grandfather passed
An ode to his ending just minus the blast

Break
Chorus

Candide
Verse 1
You’re twice a child and once a man
Just accept it and understand
There is nothing that you can do about it
You start out small and grow up strong
But your strengths don’t last too long
Until your voice it grows to weak to shout it

Chorus 1
But hey now don’t be sad
For all these things that will go bad
Even though one day you’re gonna die
But hey now it could be worse
You may not end up in that hurse
And the only thing that’s worst than death is life

Verse 2
Well you’ll grow up and fall in love
With a pretty girl you’ll put above
All your passions, friends and family
And then one day during your life
You’ll ask this girl to be your wife
But she’ll divorce you and take all of your money

Chorus 2
But hey now don’t be sad
For all these things that will go bad
Even though you have a retched wife
But hey now it could be worse
You may not end up in that hurse
And the only thing that’s worse than death is life
Verse 3
Then someday you’ll have a boy
And shower him with love and joy
And tell everyone that you’re proud of your son
As he grows up he’ll be real bright
The kind the bully’s love to fight
And the news reports will say he used your gun

Chorus 3
But hey now don’t be sad
For all these things that will go bad
At least your son didn’t use a knife
But hey now it could be worse
You may not end up in that hurse
And the only thing that’s worse than death is life

Verse 4
As the years go by you’ll turn grey
And the doctors will tell you someday
That the disease has moved into the bone
While you sit there frail and old
Your heart will stop the blood will turn cold
And you will have died sad and alone

Chorus 1
But hey now don’t be sad
For all these things that will go bad
Even though someday you’re gonna die
But hey now it could be worse
You may not end up in that hurse
And the only thing worse than death is life

Verse:1
You look so pretty in your red pants
I think I’d like to ask you to dance
But I know…you would say no
You look so nice with your auburn hair
Pick a place I’d like to take you there
But I know…you wouldn’t go

Chorus:
And maybe we knew each other, in another life
And I’d like to meet you darlin, maybe some other time
But tonight’s not the night
No it just don’t seem right
But next time, next time I’ll give it a try

Verse:2
I see you sitting in your crimson chair
And I should probably come over there
But I won’t…I’m just too afraid
And I could smoother my flamed cigarette
Make my way over to where you sit
But then what…what would I say

Chorus:

Verse:
You drink the last sip of your cherry drink
Standing up and you’re leaving I think
Cause I saw… saw you walk toward the door
Now all I see here are bloodshot eyes
So I guess I too will say my goodbyes
But I hope…I hope to see you once more

Chorus:
