All The World Is Green
Tom Waits Lyrics


I fell into the ocean
And you became my wife
I risked it all against the sea
To have a better life

Marie you are the wild blue sky
Men do foolish things
You turn kings into beggars
Beggars into kings

Pretend that you owe me nothing
And all the world is green
We can bring back the old days again
When all the world is green

The face forgives the mirror
The worm forgives the plow
The questions begs the answer
Can you forgive me somehow?

Maybe when our story's over
We'll go where it's always spring
The band is playing our song again
All the world is green

Pretend that you owe me nothing
And all the world is green
Can we bring back the old days again
When all the world is green

Moon is yellow silver
Oh, the things that summer brings
It's a love you'd kill for
And all the world is green

He's balancing a diamond
On a blade of grass
The dew will settle on our graves
When all the world is green

Pretend that you owe me nothing
And all the world is green
We can bring back the old days again
When all the world is green

He's balancing a diamond
On a blade of grass
The dew will settle on our graves
When all the world is green

I fell into the ocean
When you became my wife
I risked it all aganist the sea
To have a better life

Pretend that you owe me nothing
And all the world is green
We can bring back the old days again
And all the world is green

Amazing

I fell into the ocean
And you became my wife
I risked it all against the sea
To have a better life
Marie you are the wild blue sky
Men do foolish things
You turn kings into beggars
Beggars into kings
Pretend that you owe me nothing
And all the world is green
We can bring back the old days again
When all the world is green
The face forgives the mirror
The worm forgives the plow
The questions begs the answer
Can you forgive me somehow?
Maybe when our story's over
We'll go where it's always spring
The band is playing our song again
All the world is green
Pretend that you owe me nothing
And all the world is green
Can we bring back the old days again
When all the world is green
Moon is yellow silver
Oh, the things that summer brings
It's a love…

I thought it said "the world forgives the cloud" but worm and plow makes more sense
