The Killing Joke

“When the world is full of care
And every headline screams despair
When all is rape, starvation, war, and life is vile
Then there’s a certain thing I do
Which I shall pass along to you
That’s always guaranteed to make me smile…
I go…
As a light-bulb battered bug
Sometimes foam and chew the rug
Mister, life is swell
In a padded cell
It’ll chase those blues away…
You can trade your gloom
For a rubber room
And injections twice a day.
Just go
Like an acid casuality
Or a
Or a preacher on T.V.
When the human race
Wears an anxious face
When the bomb hangs overhead
When your kid turns blue
It won’t worry you
You can just smile and nod your head.
When you’re
Then you just don’t give a fig…
Man’s so
And the Universe so big
If you hurt inside
Get certified
And if life should treat you bad
Don’t get
Get MAD!”
