Calling all pretenders to the front
Sweet Erin in the back knows that she's one
But she stands firm
She's trying to stay in turn

Calling all pretenders to the floor
We smile through their enemies and shuffle through the bore
Sweet Erin falls down to her knees
I just can't do this anymore

[chorus]
Well maybe we're all lost in who we thought we were
Sweet Erin hears the cries from those who thought they knew her
Maybe she's a puppet on a foolish arm
Is our ambition burning out?
Has it burned too low to shout?

I was taught to count my blessings twice
But living with my failures will suffice
So if I try pretending once again
Will I even notice when I've been?
Sweet life may break me down
But I will know her in the end

[chorus]

La la la la
La la la la la la la la la
La la la la
La la la la la la la la la
La la la la
La la la la la la la la la
La la la la
La la la la la la la la la

Well I was taught to count my blessings twice
But living with my failures will suffice

Calling all pretenders to the front
