    Lyrics

    And you measure for wealth by the things you can hold
    And you measure for love by the sweet things you're told
    And you live in the past of a dream that you're in
    And your selfishness is your cardinal sin

    And you want to be held with highest regard
    If he likes you so much
    If he's trying so hard
    And you're trying to conceal your ordinary way
    With a smile or a shrug
    Or some stolen cliche

    But don't you understand
    And don't you look about
    I'm trying to take nothing from you
    So why should you act so put out, for me

    'Cause emotionally, you're the same basic trip
    And you know that I know of the times that you've slipped
    So don't try to impress me
    You're just pins and paint
    And don't try to charm me
    With things that you ain't

    And don't try to enchant me with your manner of dress
    'Cause a monkey in silk is a monkey no less
    So measure for measure, reflect on my said
    And when I won't see 'ya then measure it dead

    'Cause don't you understand
    And don't you look about
    I'm trying to take nothing from you
    So why should you act so put out
    And sit there and wonder in doubt, for me
