They Might Be Giants Answer Lyrics

year after year

though every dream of a pony would end in tears

the cake was lit and as you blew the candles out

your heart refilled

and every year

your dream was killed

it may take an ocean of whiskey and time

to wash all of the letdown out of your mind

and this may not be the thing you requested but I

am the answer to all your prayers

all this time interested agents have been eavesdropping upstairs

when will you recognize that I am the answer to all your prayers

you ordered well

they brought you medium rare

you were promised fair

and in response a clap of thunder broke the air

the weather changed

the sky went black

and then it rained

it may take an ocean of whiskey and time

to wash all of the letdown out of your mind

and this may not be the item you selected but I

am the answer to all your prayers

all this time the surveillance machine has been all up in your affairs

when will you realize that I am the answer to all your prayers

it might seem like a thankless existence

but don’t lose hope just yet

you’ll be remembered for your persistence

and this is the thanks you get

you wanted tall

I came in under 5’4”

then you asked for dark

I tend to sunburn a lot

as for handsome well

can’t help you there

so make of it what you will

it may take an ocean of whiskey and time

to wash all of the letdown out of your mind

and I may not be the one you expected but I

am the answer to all your prayers

all this time interested agents have been eavesdropping upstairs

when will you get that I am the answer to all your prayers

all this time the surveillance machine has been all up in your affairs

it should be clear to you by now that I am the final answer to all your prayers
