TITLE: All for the Best
Lyrics and Chords


[ F#dim7 = xx1212 ]

When you feel sad or under a curse
Your life is bad, your prospects are worse
Your wife is crying, sighing and your olive tree is dying
Temples are graying and teeth are decaying
And creditors weighing your purse
Your mood and your robe are both a deep blue
You'd bet that Job had nothing on you
Don't forget that when you go to heaven you'll be blessed
Yes it's all for the best!

Some men are born to live at ease, doing what they please, richer than the bees are in honey
Never growing old, never feeling cold, pulling pots of gold from thin air
The best in every town, best at shaking down, best at making mountains of money
They can't take it with them
But what do they care
They get the center of the meat, cushions on their seat, houses on a street where it's sunny
Summers at the sea, winters warm and free, all of this and we get the rest
But who is the land for, the sun and the sand for
You guessed it's all for the best

{Sing both verses together, ending as:}

You guessed it's all for the - You must never be distressed
Yes, it's all for the - All your wrongs will be redressed
Yes, it's all for the - Someone's got to be oppressed!
Yes, it's all for the best
