Life Is A Lemon

It's all or nothing
 D/F#
And nothing's all I ever get
 F#m
Everytime I turn it on, I burn it up and burn it out

It's always something
 D/F#F#m
There's always something going wrong

That's the only guarantee, that's what this is all about

 F#5G#5A5D5
                       It's a never ending attack
 F#5G#5A5D5
                       Everything's a lie and that's a fact
 F#5G#5A5D5
                       Life is a lemon and I want my money back

| F#m | D/F# | F#m | ||

And all the morons
And all the stooges with their coins
They're the ones who make the rules
It's not a game, it's just a rout

There's desperation
There's desperation in the air
It leaves a stain on all your clothes
And no detergent gets it out

And we're always slipping thru the cracks
Then the movie's over, fade to black
Life is a lemon and I want my money back

It's all or nothing
And nothing's all I ever get
Everytime I turn it on, I burn it up and burn it out

It's a never ending attack
Everything's a lie and that's a fact
Life is a lemon and I want my money back

And we're always slipping thru the cracks
Then the movie's over, fade to black
Life is a lemon and I want my money back
Back, back, back, back!
I want my money back, I want my money back - life is a lemon
