The Anchoress – One For Sorrow Lyrics

One for sorrow, two for joy
These are the rules that you must employ.
Mother told me time to settle down
Just find a man and a house in a cosy little town.
It’s one for sorrow and two for joy
You don’t need a friend to get your happy end…
Father told me don’t you be so smart
Just find a boy that you like
Who’ll try not to break your heart.

To have no sorrow
You can’t go wrong
Taking words of advice from an old love song

It’s one for sorrow 2 for joy
These are the rules that you must employ
It’s one for sorrow
You only fail if you measure up your life against a fairy tale

The happyeverafter dream is a lie that they sell you in the magazines
Mother told me life would be complete
With a man and a car and a house on a street
It’s one for sorrow, and two for joy
Cos these are the rules that you must employ

Father told me that there ain’t no pain
That the needle on the record puts together again
To have no sorrow,
You can only fail if you measure up your life against a fairy tale

It’s one for sorrow 2 for joy
These are the rules that you must employ
It’s one for sorrow
You can’t go wrong
Taking words of advice from an old love song
It’s one for sorrow 2 for joy
These are the rules that you must employ
It’s one for sorrow
You only fail if you measure up your life against a fairy tale

It’s one for sorrow…
It’s one for sorrow…
It’s one for sorrow…
It’s one for sorrow…
Oh…

It’s one for sorrow 2 for joy
These are the rules that you must employ
It’s one for sorrow
You only fail if you measure up your life against a fairy tale
(Measure up your life against a fail)
It’s one for sorrow 2 for joy
These are the rules that you must employ
It’s one for sorrow
You can’t go wrong
Taking words of advice from an old love song
(It’s all over all over all over all over…
