Stefan Andersson - Mona Lisa lyrics

It's by our failures
that we progress on
down through history
Isn't it crazy
some inventive mothers
were glorified through luck

It was a failure
out of an absent mind
down by the Chateau Fizz
that made it bubble
in his bottle of wine
Sweet Lord I'm hooked

Mona-Lisa was probably one
Just a slip of the pencil
and her glory had come
The smile she's wearing
it ain't nothing but a wrong
Just a slip of the pencil
and her song was sung

It was a failure
made by a Chinese man
down by the carry out
that made his powder-keg
turn into fireworks
when he stubbed out his fag

It was a pleasure
found by the one who popped
popcorn to our world
He did't mean to
but that's the way it goes
"Right time, right place"
