Oh yes, I'm fine.

Do you think everything, everyone, is going mental?
It seems to me that it's spiralling out of control and it's inevitable.
Now don't you think, this time is yours, this time is mine?
It's temperamental.
It seems to me we're on all fours crawling on our knees,
Someone help us please.

Oh Jesus Christ Almighty,
Do I feel alright? No, not slightly
I wanna get a flat I know I can't afford it,
It's just the bureaucrats who won't give me a mortgage.
It's very funny cos I got your fucking money,
And I'm never gonna get it just because of my bad credit.
Oh well I guess I mustn't grumble,
I suppose that's just the way the cookie crumbles.

Oh yes, I'm fine.
Everything's just wonderful, I'm having the time of my life.

Don't you want something else?
Something new than what we've got here.
And don't you feel it's all the same?
Some sick game and it's not insincere.
I wish I could change the ways of the world, make it a nice place
Until that day, I guess we stay doing what we do, screwing who we screw

Why can't I sleep at night?
Don't say it's gonna be alright
I wanna be able to eat spaghetti bolognaise and not feel bad about it for days and days and days.
In the magazines they talk about weight loss.
If i buy those jeans I can look like Kate Moss.
Oh no, it's not the life I chose,
But I guess that's the way that things go.

Everything's just wonderful - Lily Allen

The italicised and bolded parts are the best parts of this song. Wonder why?
