    Lyrics

    Those resourceful romeos have all revealed
    You're the juliet who couldn't be genteel
    All the parents looked askance with much displeasure
    As you dared to dance off with their little treasures
    And the teachers who preached anguish and abstention
    Treated you with distant condescension
    Patronised your youthful indignation
    With their idiotic indoctrination
    Then gave you bad grades just for being clever
    And you're qualified to be in debt for ever
    And you'll wonder what you did
    And you'll think you don't deserve it
    When the bad things, bad things
    When all the bad things in your life turn to worth it

    All the candidates who claim to know your fears
    Shit silence like it's verbal diarrhoea
    Imply that your suggestions are so tired
    Like they aspired to something higher
    They gonna sack you when you give them the wrong answers
    Or for failing to respond to his advances
    And you're faced with a senator's enquiry
    Sequestering your private life in diaries
    Those wretched romeos now politicians
    Telling all the truth but with omissions
    And you'll think that you've been blessed
    And you thought that you were cursed
    When all the bad things, bad things
    When all the bad things in your life turn to worth it

    The pages fly, the calendar gets thinner
    Springs turns into summer into winter
    Preachers will illuminate their candles
    On romeos with trousers round their ankles

    The politicians surrender to indictment
    The teachers sacked for lack of excitement
    But these are not the reasons you endure
    Revenge could never please a heart so pure
    You thought your reward would be in heaven
    Or a day job at the 7-11
    While everyone around you ran for cover
    You found a secret, now your name is love
    And you'll wonder what you did
    And you'll think you don't deserve it
    When all the bad things, bad things
    When all the bad things in your life turn to worth it
    When all the bad things in your life turn to worth it
