lyrics

Good gracious
Yes, my name is Lars
I work here at the registry
Of wishes
Made on shooting stars

Where each
Entreaty is recorded
Here among the registry
It's just what the
Wish doctor ordered

And deep within our catalogue
A little boy named Jase
Has wished health on his father
I'm assigned now to his case

I read his gentle case file
With a tremble to my hand
Although the spelling's awful
All the sentiment is grand

I take one sip of coffee
It's needed to feel better
And start the daily mission
Of replying to the letter

Dear Master Smith, I start with,
We apologise with grace
Regret your father's ill health
And within ten working days

We'll send him antibodies
And a latent cancer cure
Sincerely, Lars, ex-cosmonaut
He'll soon be good and pure

Then added as a postscript
It has come to my attention
He's been dead ten years to cancer
Please send no further intentions.

And so, I click the button
One great smile upon my gob
I love to help the needy, yes
That's why I love this job

Which bastard said bureaucracy's
An inefficient thing?
I lean back at my comfy desk
My heart begins to sing

Good gracious
Yes, my name is Lars
I work here at the registry
Of wishes
Made on shooting stars

Where each
Entreaty is recorded
Here among the registry
It's just what the
Wish doctor ordered
