I love the way your verses
Are all filled with curses
But your middle eight
Is so delicate
And your chorus I could never forget
The way it sways and swells
What heart could imagine
Lines so tender, a coda so tragic
And a melody so clear and strong

You are my favorite song
The one where everything goes wrong
I could play you all night long
Until the sun comes rolling up

Were you born on a barroom napkin
Or in the heart of some seasick captain?
Longing for the shore
As the waves beat four by four
Or maybe six by eight
Were you once a waltz with a loping gait?
Did lovers' cheeks fill with heat
As you spun them across the floor?

You are my favorite song
The one where everything goes wrong
I could sing you all night long
Until the sun comes rolling up

And though the radio stations
Have all lose their patience
For your simple, sad refrain
Every once in a while
I will find you at the left of the dial
And try to tune you in again

You are my favorite song
The one where everything goes wrong
I could play you all night long
Until the sun comes rolling up

You are my favorite tune
Boys, you know what to do
So come on now on two
Let's take it from the top

You are my favorite song
The one where everything goes wrong
I could play you all night long
But I think the sun is coming up
