Someone Up There
by Joe Jackson



We walked out one autumn evening
Someone up there made a fair appear
Colored light that caught our eyes
And reggae music caught our ears

We laughed as they played all the songs
We wanted least of all to hear
I guess that's when I knew
That we'd be more than just good friends
It happened just by chance

Someone up there - someone up there makes the sun and sea
Someone up there - someone up there brought my girl to me
Someone up there - someone up there makes the wind and rain
Someone up there - someone up there took her back again

And just for once
You can't fight back
No messing with the hand of fate
Oh no

The paper ran an ad
That had you running to the other side of town
Working for a man I never could make out
Who started hanging round

Someone up there got me drinking got me drunk
And made me put him down
The way you looked at me I knew
That we'd be coming to an end
It happened just by chance

Someone up there - someone up there makes the sun and sea
Someone up there - someone up there brought my girl to me
Someone up there - someone up there makes the wind and rain
Someone up there - someone up there took her back again

And just for once
You can't fight back
No messing with the hand of fate
Oh no
