boys wear overcoats in heat like this to keep themselves from showing
girls fill out prescriptions for the tricks that keep their hearts from growing
specialists review the year in tears and call for drastic measures
send them to resorts for boys and girl to get their wits together
sad but true the facts of life are bound to get you down
so whats the use dear jenny anyway the world is pretty...
ashley talks to astronauts back home by way of fax transmission
andy gets a new tattoo each time his pastor comes to visit
weary o so drearily we wave our flags into the camera
amber goes the hotlines are friends but no-one ever answers
sad but true the truth can turn your smile to a frown
so whats the use dear jenny anyway the world is pretty
the rates are better in the summer
looks like dear jenny’s doing better...
back at home the broadcast warning bounces off of an empty table
jenny asks the astronauts to sleep with her behind the stable
christmas hasn’t been the same since dad put in the central heating
checks you before bedtime with a battery to keep your new heart beating
and the world might turn a million times around before
they tell you jenny anyway the world is pretty world is pretty happy world is pretty happy
sometimes they let strangers in and other times they check their records
when they check out in the morning dad puts out the lie detectors
jenny prays to gods she’s never heard of for a special hurting
all the walls stay dead as jenny's head is
but shes still observing
sad but true the two of us might really make it through
but whats the use dear jenny anyway
the world is happy
world is happy
world is happy without you...
the rates are better in the summer....
looks like old jenny's doing better...
