Here we go again, same old argument 
You're callin' me Miss Pollyanne 
You see the world as cruel, and being mad is cool
You think that I don't give a damn

You don't have to shout to be heard 
Who said dark is deep
You'd rather flip the bird
I'd rather show you signs of peace 
Love ain't a dyin' art
As far as I can see
Oh, sentimental me

Fist up in the air
Mine used to be up there 
You only give yourself away
 Paint your roses black and blue
Use the fuck word I can too
When I have nothing else to say

You don't have to shout to be heard 
Who said dark is deep
You'd rather flip the bird
I'd rather show you signs of peace 
Love ain't a dyin' art
As far as I can see
Oh, sentimental me

Oh, sentimental me
 Sentimental me
Here we go again 
We may never change
So you can call me Pollyanne
