Lyrics Edit

Hello cruel world so this is you

A broken heart, a withered view

I'm looking out to face another day

The angry mob, the happy mass

This birthday cake may be the last

I'm looking out to find another way

Norman rockwell colors fade

All my favorite things have changed

What the hell, Hello cruel world


I thought I heard an opera star

Who had no home under the stars

She sang and sang and sang the night away

And mother nature changed her name

She doesn't want to play the game

I don't believe she'll ever be the same

So big brother never came

Howdy-doodie gets the blame

But what the hell Hello cruel world

Fat and beautiful and strange

Monkeys dancing in a cage

But what the hell Hello cruel world

Venus de milo grew an arm

And old mcdonald bought the farm

Say goodbye Hello cruel world


Norman rockwell colors fade

All my favorite things have changed

But what the hell, hello cruel world

Fat and beautiful and strange

Monkeys dancing in a cage

But what the hell Hello cruel world

Say goodbye, hello cruel world

But what the hell Hello cruel world


Hello hello Ooooh ooooh

Hello cruel world
