Happy Annie
She wakes up scared
Such a big day she's unprepared
She's wanted this since she was a girl
More than anything in the whole wide world

Go get your mom's white wedding dress
Play Bride with the family pets
In the bedroom bells were ringing
Oh
She imagined everyone singing

But she never thought it's this way
Cause she loved
She loved
She loved, she loved him
She loved
She loved, she loved

Look how she loved
Look how she loved him

Wake up Tommy, do you feel the pain that you got inside?
Find you mommy, spread her legs and climb back up inside.

Boys who trap animals, are animals themselves.
So wake up Tommy, don't you know that
you're going to burn in hell!

But he never thought it's this way
Cause he loved
He loved, He loved her
He loved
He loved, he loved her

No, no, no.
No, no, no.

People for sale
(This is true)
Sell your selves visually
(try to find some youth
and watch it all go bye)
So comfortable being a slave
You sir, you say yes
Beautiful people

Happy Annie, so much pain
Can't break free from the chain
She's thinking about what she never did
She want adventure, but she loved her kids
Love with a man has slowly died
Don't talk about it, she preferred to lie
In her bedroom, bells were ringing
Oh
She imagines everyone singing

La, lala, la

Wake up Tommy, can't you see the pain you caused in side
Look at mommy, as she finds a place for her love to hide

So set her free man
And you will see Dad
That you'll be free as well

But she never thought it's this way
Cause they loved
They loved, they're lovers
They loved
They loved, they're lovers

No they never thought it's this way
Cause they loved
They loved
They loved, they're lovers

    General CommentI portray this song to be about a "annie" who is naive about love, and a guy who takes advantage of her loving that is innocent.

    Although I feel that there's something there that's too obscure for me to see.

    General CommentI'd say this song is clearly about getting married for the sake of being married. "she's wanted this since she was a girl." I think this is about how people get caught up in the fantasy of love and "the one". If you have your wedding planned before you know who you plan to get married to, then you'll know what this song means. Annie regrets binding herself to this guy who's changed and how she's not who she wanted to be, with all her adventure. "But they never thought it's this way, they loved." They thought all they had to do was get married and it'd be great, but they fell out of love and now they're trapped because they can't admit that they made a mistake.

    General CommentI think this song is about a girl who gets pregnant, so she marries the father, simply because he's the father. Both of them thought they would marry someone they loved, she imagined her perfect wedding since she was a girl, but it ddin't turn out like that.

    So basically, the kid ruined his mother and fathers life (Wake up Tommy, can't you see the pain you caused in side. Look at mommy, as she finds a place for her love to hide) And they stay together for the kids sake, and lie about their love. She pretends everything is alright, even though she's miserable.
