You know young girls like happy endings
Well I guess that's the way it's got to be
'cos without all these happy endings
what would happen to my industry ? yehhhh

(You know that you)
You know I wrote this shit to sell ya, sell ya,
(You know that I)
You know I never mean a word I tell 'ya
(You know that we)
You know I wrote this hit to sell ya, sell ya,
(You know that I)
You know I never mean a word I tell 'ya

Ivory towers wrapped round in silk
A young calf with his mother's milk
Victorian England shining so bright
Two lovers kissing in the moonlight

(You know that you)
You know I wrote that hit to sell ya, sell ya,
(You know that I)
You know I never mean a word I tell 'ya
(You know that we)
You know I wrote this shit to sell ya, sell ya,
(You know that I)
You know I never mean a word I tell 'ya

And the feeling's stronger
The reason's longer, oo...

You know young girls like happy endings
Well I guess that's the way it's got to be
'cos without all these happy endings
what would happen to my industry

    General CommentA witty commentary on the music industry and how consumers like happy, upbeat songs with "happily ever after" themes, even if the artists of such songs do not believe in the messages that they communicate through their music. fantastic, and it is a happy, upbeat song, until you realize that gorky's is criticizing this sort of genre. very much reminiscent of Belle & Sebastian's "Get me away from here, I'm dying," I think
