Lyrics

Chorus:

Surprises, surprises, they come all shapes and sizes
You never know what's round the bend
It might delight, it might offend
That's why there's surprises with all their highs and lows
Do you come out top or come full stop
Who knows, who knows, who knows!
You're half way up a hillside and all is going fine
When all at once a snow slide comes right across the line
You think you're really done for, but help is on its way
You'd be surprised how often that someone saves the day
Surprises, surprises, they come all shapes and sizes
You never know what's round the bend
It might delight, it might offend
That's why there's surprises with all their highs and lows
Do you come out top or come full stop
Who knows, who knows, who knows!
A day of no surprises may be dull and flat
'Cause no one knows what's down the line
You can be sure of that
Surprises, surprises, they come all shapes and sizes
You never know what's round the bend
It might delight, it might offend
That's why there's surprises with all their highs and lows
Do you come out top or come full stop
Who knows, who knows, who knows!
That's why there's surprises with all their highs and lows
Do you come out top or come full stop
Who knows, who knows, who knows!
Surprises, surprises, they come all shapes and sizes
You never know what's round the bend
It might delight, it might offend
That's why there's surprises with all their highs and lows
Do you come out top, come full stop
Shine and gleam, need a clean
Take the mail, come off the rail
Who knows, who knows, who knows!
