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

Skin

 

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

Queens

 

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

Free

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
