Lyrics - Mad Mad World


I was standing with my paper there

Minding my own news

For everything that someone said

Someone else had a different view

I watched the whole thing there

Unfold upon my tv screen

"A new world order is on its way"

Well pass the popcorn please

You don't mean to tell me

No one here is going to get hurt

When there's folks at home who

Eat dog food they can't afford a shirt

Sure find out real fast who's a sitting duck

When it's a...

Mad mad world... shake your hands

And say good's a

Mad mad world...I can not believe this's a

Mad mad world...getting madder every day....

Mad mad world...get involved and they'll blow you away

Sure find out real fast when you're a sitting duck

That it's a mad mad world

A little man sits up way high

Way above the crowd

Can you make them dance real fast

Can you make them cheer real loud

Money doesn't talk it swears

It sounds like a big machine

A voice on high says you reap what you sow

Just keep your own nose clean

More smoke fills up the air

More toxins up the creek

That's when the cash it changes hands

So we turn the other cheek

Sure find out real fast just when you've

Had enough when it's a...


He walks into the office and

He finds a big pink slip

It's says "you are no longer needed here

So take a good long trip"

You can take your gold watch and

Stick it you know where

Cause he's fired up and he's jacked up and

He's loaded up for bear
