The World Isn't Fair (世界並不公平) - Randy Newman

Written by:Randy Newman

When Karl Marx was a boy


He took a hard look around


He saw people were starving all over the place


While others were painting the town


The public spirited boy


Became a public spirited man


So he worked very hard and he read everything


Until he came up with a plan


There'll be no exploitation


Of the worker or his kin


No discrimination 'cause of the color of your



No more private property

It would not be allowed

No one could rise too high


No one could sink too low


Or go under completely like some we all know


If Marx were living today


He'd be rolling around in his grave


And if I had him here in my mansion on the hill


I'd tell him a story would give his old heart

A chill


It's something that happened to me


I'd say Karl I recently stumbled


Into a new family


With two little children in school


Where all little children should be


I went to the orientation


All the young mommies were there


Karl you never have seen such a glorious sight


As these beautiful women arrayed for the night


Just like countesses empresses movie stars and



And they'd come there with men much like me


Froggish men unpleasant to see


Were you to kiss one Karl


Nary a prince would there be


Oh Karl the world isn't fair


It isn't and never will be


They tried out your plan

It brought misery instead

If you'd seen how they worked it

You'd be glad you were dead

Just like I'm glad I'm living in the land of the


Where the rich just get richer

And the poor you don't ever have to see


It would depress us Karl


Because we care


That the world still isn't fair
