      About "The World Isn't Fair"

      Lyrics for Randy Newman - "The World Isn't Fair"

      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 t'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
