It never rains but it pours
Do keep the wolf from the door
I see him sitting in silence
Outside my house
Quiet as a mouse

I tried to buy you roses but all the stars were closed
And if I had a diamond ring I'd wear it through my nose
But I can't dance and I can't sing
A loser I suppose
So all I have is buttercups
All I have is buttercups
What is wrong with buttercups
Who knows

You said to have and to hold
Do let me in from the cold
I see you sitting in silence
Inside your house
Quiet as a mouse

I tried to buy you roses but all the stars were closed
And if I had a diamond ring I'd wear it through my nose
But I can't dance and I can't sing
A loser I suppose
So all I have is buttercups
All I have is buttercups
What is wrong with buttercups
Who knows

And this could be life as we know it
How can I see if you never show it

I tried to buy you roses
But all the stars were closed
I tried to buy you roses but all the stars were closed
And if I had a diamond ring I'd wear it through my nose
But I can't dance and I can't sing
A loser I suppose
So all I have is buttercups
All I have is buttercups
What is wrong with buttercups
Who knows
Who knows
Who knows

    Lyric CorrectionI think it's not "all the stars were closed", but "all the stores were closed". Makes a bit more sense ^^
