Jack and Jill went up the hill
No friends, no rice to spill
But there, before God, they bet it all

Jack had pock marks on his skin
Jill was over the hill,
but looking for a new beginning
They had no golden band
Just hormones and a plan
But plans don't always work out like they should
Like you hoped they would
In life's endless flow
So it goes...

But Jack and Jill, they did not cry
No existential angst, no saying, "Why God, oh why?"
No self-pity or pride
They simply re-built their lives

But life don't always work out like it should
Like you hoped it would
And life's endless flow
Oh, so it goes...

Pinballs in God's laughing machine
They bumped through life, smiling
Too simple to know hardship can grow
But hardships don't always work out like they should
Like you feared they would
And life's endless flow
So it goes...

So Jack and Jill on their porch swing
A double-side King and Queen
They love like lotto winners
Eating frozen TV dinners
Cause God takes care of drunks and children
And those who grow in a sense inside of them
While all the smart folks
Waste all those brains
On ironic jokes they made
Dismantling sacred things
From the cogs of their misery machines
Running by happiness into the arms of bitterness

Well, Jack and Jill, they have the last laugh
And laughter always works out like it should
Like you hoped it would
And life's endless flow
Oh, so it goes...
So it goes...


Alternate Hook:
But life don't always work out like it should
Like you hoped it would
And life's endless flow
Is that bad luck?
Well, heaven knows...

Jack and Jill
