When you're rife with devastation
There's a simple explanation:
You're a toymaker's creation
Trapped inside a crystal ball

And whichever way he tilts it
Know that we must be resilient
We won't let them break our spirits
As we sing this silly song

When I was a little filly, a galloping blaze overtook my city
So they shipped me off to the orphanage. Said, "ditch those roots if you wanna fit in"
So I dug one thousand holes and cut a rug with orphan foals
Memories are blurred, and their faces are obscured, but I still, know the words to this song

When you've bungled all your bangles
And your loved ones have been mangled
Listen to the jingle jangle
Of my gypsy tambourine

'Cause these chords are hypnotizing
And the whole world's harmonizing
So please children stop your crying
And just sing along with me
not mine
belong to Friendship is Witchcraft

Last Night, My iMessages wasn't working and when I ask Mom for help, She found messages I didn't realize were lies and she got angry. Now she won't give me back my iPad and she won't tell me when she will. From now on when i'm depressed when something frustrating happens, i'm going to sing this sad song with the happy tunes.

She dug her way out of the orphanage with the other orphans, and by *cut a rug* they mean they danced/celebrated.

I love your song and I have an idea for a creepy pasta and the idea of the is based on the song you wrote. So I was wondering if it was acceptable to use parts of the song in the story.

This is one of those happy sounding songs that when you actually pay attention to the lyrics it's actually REALLY sad. And yet I still enjoy it.
