from Splendid by I Fight Lions



There was a crooked man, he walked a crooked mile
He stole a crooked sixpence and smiled a crooked smile
And said "Boy, when you get older, and you start wising up
You'll see morality is malleable and everyone's a schmuck"

But he said it through fake golden veneers
Which makes it twice as hard to believe
If you can't afford a proper dentist, don't want your tips on fiscal sensibility

I don't want to spend every second I'm awake
Mulling over mistakes
I don't want to spend every penny that I make
Paying off the promises I break

There was a crooked cat who caught a hapless mouse
He drained the mouse financially and bought himself a house
Consumed by greed, he takes more than he needs
A fat feline living lavishly on another's poverty

And as he clambered out his mother's womb
He spat out a solitary silver spoon
And said "Mother, the day will come around
When I run this country, run it to the ground"
