How Come? lyrics

How Come?

Joanna
Dear God,
You better make all the bad things go away
Or you won?t get elected next time.

Kicker
Dear God,
How come, if you really are God,
You know everything bad before it happens,
Why do you let it happen?

Iris
What kind of a world is it,
Where so many terrible things happen?
Maybe you better start it all over again.

Theo
How come my friend is moving away?

Kicker
How come my sister?s bossy all day?

Joanna
How come sometimes I just wanna cry?

Brett
How come it?s rotten saying goodbye?

All
What?s the gain in feeling pain,
When feeling good is great?
How come?

Kicker
I?ll soon have to date?

Joanna
How come you bless us after we sneeze,
But you don?t put an end to disease?

Kicker
How come I?ve trouble tying my shoes?

Brett
How come it?s never easy to choose?

Joanna
Bombs explode?

Theo
And rocky road, I?m not supposed to eat

All
How come?

Iris
I?ve got smelly feet?

Theo
How come every cat has nine lives but mine?

Brett
How come you invented divorce?

Joanna
Brett?s never sent me a Valentine.

Kicker
And I still do not own a horse.

Iris
How come, in school, I gotta to learn French?

Theo
How come, in sports, I just warm the bench?

Joanna
How come some countries suffer from drought?

Kicker
How come my tonsils have to come out?

Brett
People swear?

Joanna
And where?s clean air?

Kicker
And where?s some dinosaurs?

All
How come, there?ll always be wars?

Iris
How come all my teeth are loaded with plaque?

Theo
How come I don?t have perfect sight?

All
How come you make colors in every shade,
But some only see black and white?

Iris, Theo, Brett
How come some never learn right from wrong?

Joanna, Kicker
How come some countries can?t get along?

All
How come some people get really sick?
We need some answers, double quick!
Do you care that life?s unfair?
It means a lot to some.

We need to know right now,
Why all this you allow?

Brett
How?

Iris
How?

Theo
How?

Kicker
How?

Joanna
How?

All
How come?
