Surprise, Surprise

 

SURPRISE, SURPRISE
 
 
Have you ever seen a one trick pony in the field so happy and free
If you've ever seen a one trick pony then you've seen me
Have you ever seen a one legged dog makin' his way down the street
If you've ever seen a one legged dog then you've seen me
 
(Then you've seen me) I come and stand at every door
(Then you've seen me) I always leave with less than I had before
(Then you've seen me) but I can make you smile when the blood it hits the floor
Tell me friend can you ask for anything more
Tell me friend can you ask for anything more
 
Have you ever seen a scarecrow filled with nothing but dust and weeds
If you've ever seen that scarecrow then you've seen me
Have you ever seen a one armed man punchin' at nothing but the breeze
If you've ever seen a one armed man then you've seen me
 
(Then you've seen me) I come and stand at every door
(Then you've seen me) I always leave with less than I had before
(Then you've seen me) but I can make you smile when the blood it hits the floor
Tell me friend can you ask for anything more
Tell me friend can you ask for anything more
 
These things that have comforted me I drive away (anything more)
This place that is my home I cannot stay (anything more)
My only faith is in the broken bones and bruises I display
 
Have you ever seen a oSurprise, surprise
Well, surprise, surprise, surprise
Yea, surprise, surprise, surprise 
Well, surprise, surprise 
C'mon open your eyes and let your love shine down
Well, surprise, surprise, surprise
Yea, surprise, surprise, surprise 
Well, surprise, surprise 
C'mon open your eyes and let your love shine down
 
Today is your birthday we traveled so far we two
So let's blow out the candles on your cake and we'll raise a glass or two
And when the sun comes out tomorrow
It'll be the start of a brand new day
And all that you have wished for I know will come your way
 
Well, surprise, surprise, surprise
Yea, surprise, surprise, surprise 
Well, surprise, surprise 
C'mon open your eyes and let your love shine down
In the hollow of the evening, as you lay your head to rest
May the evening stars scatter a shining crown upon your breast
In the darkness of the morning as the sky struggles to light 
May the rising sun caress and bless your soul for all your life
 
Well, surprise, surprise, surprise
Yea, surprise, surprise, surprise 
Well, surprise, surprise 
C'mon open your eyes and let your love shine down
 
Well, surprise, surprise, surprise
Yea, surprise, surprise, surprise 
Well, surprise, surprise 
C'mon open your eyes and let your love shine down
 
Surprise, surprise 
C'mon open your eyes and let your love shine down

SURPRISE, SURPRISE
 
Bon, surprise, surprise, surprise,
Ouais, surprise, surprise, surprise,
Bon, surprise, surprise,
Allez, ouvre les yeux et laisse ton amour briller
Bon, surprise, surprise, surprise,
Ouais, surprise, surprise, surprise,
Bon, surprise, surprise,
Allez, ouvre les yeux et laisse ton amour briller
 
Aujourd’hui, c’est ton anniversaire nous avons voyagé si loin nous deux
Alors soufflons les bougies sur ton gâteau et nous lèverons un verre ou deux
Et quand le soleil se lèvera demain
Ce sera le départ d’un tout nouveau jour
Et tout ce que tu as souhaité
Je le sais, arrivera sur ton chemin
 
Bon, surprise, surprise, surprise,
Ouais, surprise, surprise, surprise,
Bon, surprise, surprise,
Allez, ouvre les yeux et laisse ton amour briller
 
Le soir, entre chien et loup, quand tu poses ta tête pour te reposer,
Puissent les étoiles du soir venir se disperser en couronne brillante au dessus de ta poitrine
Dans l’obscurité du matin, quand le ciel se bat pour s’illuminer
Que le soleil levant caresse et bénisse ton âme pour la vie entière
 
Bon, surprise, surprise, surprise,
Ouais, surprise, surprise, surprise,
Bon, surprise, surprise,
Allez, ouvre les yeux et laisse ton amour briller
 
Bon, surprise, surprise, surprise,
Ouais, surprise, surprise, surprise,
Bon, surprise, surprise,
Allez, ouvre les yeux et laisse ton amour briller
 
Surprise, surprise,
Allez, ouvre les yeux et laisse ton amour briller
