"Everything's Just Wonderful" as written by Gregory Allen Kurstin and Lily Allen....
Do you think everything
Everyone is goin' mental?
It seems to me, it's spiraling
Out of control and it's inevitable

Well, don't you think
This time is yours
This time is mine?
It's temperamental

It seems to me
We're on all fours
Crawling on your knees
Someone help us please

Oh Jesus Christ almighty
Do I feel alright?
No, not slightly
I wanna get a flat

And no I can't afford it
It's just those bureaucrats
That won't give me a mortgage
It's very funny 'cause
I got your fucking money
And I'm never gonna get it
Just 'cause of my bad credit
Oh well, I guess I mustn't grumble
I suppose it's just the way
The cookie crumbles

Oh yes, I'm fine
Everything's just wonderful
I'm having the time of my life

Well, do you want
Something else
Something newer
Than what we got here?
Well, do you feel
It's all the same
Some sick game
It's so insincere?

I wish I could
Change the ways
Of the world
Make it a nice place
Until that day
I guess we stay
Doin' what we do, screwin' who we screw

Why can't I sleep at night?
Gonna say it's gonna be alright
I wanna be able to
Eat spaghetti bolognese
And not feel bad about it
For days and days and days

All the magazines
They talk about weight loss
If I buy those jeans
I can look like Kate Moss
I know it's not the life that I chose
But I guess that's just
The way that things go

Oh yes, I'm fine
Everything's just wonderful
I'm having the time of my life

Oh yes, I'm fine
Everything's just wonderful
I'm having the time of my life

Oh Jesus Christ almighty
Do I feel alright?
No, not slightly
I wanna get a flat
And no I can't afford it
It's just those bureaucrats
That won't give me a mortgage
It's very funny 'cause
I got your fucking money
And I'm never gonna get it
Just 'cause of my bad credit
Oh well, I guess I mustn't grumble

I suppose it's just the way
The cookie crumbles
But I guess that's just
The way that things go
I suppose it's just the way
The cookie crumbles
But I guess that's just
The way that things go
But I guess that's just
The way that things go

    General CommentWhat are you talking about? None of them are judging anything. They were discussing, but not judging. You appear to me a very bitter person and I could suggest that you should go out and get help.

    And as far as being 'Just fine', I think she's swaying on both sides. Like, she gets frustrated when there are things she just can't control, but other times -even though she has problems on the side- at the moment she's able to do whatever and be completely worry free about it at the moment. Sorry, run-on sentence. Then later on it comes and bites her in the butt, and she feels down again.

    General Commenti love this song,
    I wanna be able to eat spaghetti bolognase,
    And not feel bad about it for days and days and days,
    All the magazines they talk about weight loss,
    If I buy those dreams, I can look like Kate Moss

    is brilliant
    i feel its a bit satirical and all that, saying all this stupid social stuff is going on but shes still having a good time, unless that parts sarcastic

    i love it though, this girl is fantastic!

    General CommentThis song is about the state that britain and society in general is in at the moment -
    "I wish I could, change the ways
    Of the world, make it a nice place
    Until that day, I guess we stay
    Doin' what we do, screwin' who we screw."

    Basically it means we all do what we want, have unprotected sex with who we want, do drink and drugs and be violent and its seen as acceptable now. But.. its gone too far and now "We're spiralling out of control"

    I think the whole song is satirical and sarcastic all the way through, i dont think she meant it when she says everything is wonderful and fine.

    And I think one of the line is wrong - "If I buy those dreams, I can look like Kate Moss"

    Its - "If i but those JEANS, I can look like kate moss"

    If you open any woman magazine in this moment in time there will be an article on losing weight, and an half the magazine will be on how to look more like a celebrity. And its wrong, like the lyrics suggest

    General Commentthis song is so pretty!

    I have to disagree, i think she is being sincere in 'everything being just wonderful'. it's like even thought the world is so corrupt and has the wrong morals, etc. she accepts that is just the way 'the cookie crumbles' and she is still happy as she is.

    General CommentLoooove this song. The english pop scene seems to be so much better than the US one. When I think of Lily Allen, then Hilary Duff...there's really no comparison.
