Lyrics[edit]

The Lyrics to the song are as follows:

Always blue all in a mist/ It's plain as can be/ You're so mean to me/ But everything happens for the best/ You always play around/ You're running my heart so deep in the ground/ That O.K. everything happens for the best/ I loved you so madly/ Knew you would be true/ Now this thing has happened dear/ It's over all over because we're through/ So sorry dear it end this way/ Since the world begin/ The old folks say/ Everything happens for the best/ I loved you so madly/ Knew you would be true/ Now this thing has happened dear/ It's over all over because we're through/ So sorry dear it end this way/ Since the world begin/ The old folks say/ Everything happens for the best[2]

The lyrics were written by Scott Billington and Lindsay Ellison.[3]
