    I was standing with my paper there
    minding my own news
    For everything that someone said
    someone else had a different view
    I watched the whole thing there
    unfold upon my T.V. screen
    "A new World Order is on its way"
    Well pass the popcorn please
    You don't mean to tell me
    no one here is going to get hurt
    When there's folks at home who
    eat dog food they can't afford a shirt
    Sure find out real fast who's a sitting duck
    When it's a

    Mad mad world
    Shake your hands and say good luck. It's a . . .
    Mad mad world
    I cannot believe this stuff. It's a . . .
    Mad mad world
    Getting madder every day
    Mad mad world
    Get involved and they blow you away
    Sure find out real fast when you're a sitting duck
    That it's a mad mad world

    A little man sits up way high
    way up above the crowd
    Can you make them dance real fast
    Can you make them cheer real loud

    Money doesn't talk it swears
    It sounds like a big machine
    A voice on high says you reap what you sow
    Just keep your own nose clean

    More smoke fills up the air
    More toxins up the creek
    And that's when the cash it changes hands
    so we turn the other cheek
    Sure find out real fast just when you've
    had enough that it's a


    He walks into the office and
    he finds a big pink slip
    It says "You are no longer needed here
    so take a good long trip."
    You can take your gold watch and
    stick it you know where
    cause he's fired up and he's jacked up and
    he's loaded up for bear
