Accidents Will Happen lyrics


Thrills and spills on the railway, it's a life of happiness
But sometimes impatience can lead to carelessness
Some think they are smart cats, and some just know it all
But sooner or later we all find out that

Chorus:
Accidents happen now and again, just when you least expect
Just when you think that life is okay, fate comes to collect
Accidents happen now and again, when people or trains get smart
If you don't concentrate on the thing that you're doing
Accidents will happen, just like that

Your best-laid plans can turn upside down if you get too confident
Sometimes you will slip and slide if that's Lady Luck's intent
One minute you're riding high, the next you're on the ground
But please remember, whatever the weather
You must take care 'cause

Accidents happen now and again, sometimes just by chance
You gotta pick yourself up and dust yourself down
Put it down to experience
Accidents happen now and again
Just don't take it all to heart
If you don't concentrate on the thing that you're doing
Accidents will happen, just like that

The warning signs are there for us to see most of the time
But sometimes we take chances and ignore the danger signs
Fate can surprise you, with no reason or rhyme
Make sure you learn your lesson you'll know better next time

(Chorus)

Accidents happen now and again
Sometimes just by chance
You gotta pick yourself up and dust yourself down
Put it down to experience
Accidents happen now and again
Just don't take it all to heart
If you don't concentrate on the thing that you're doing
And whatever you're doin' is not what you're thinking
Accidents, incidents
Accidents, incidents, accidents happen, just like that!
