read 'em and weep the world's gone crazy
and i might be a fool but there's one thing i know
we're in too deep and we're much too lazy
we'd rather fight and sink than swim to a new plateau

it's like oh ho ho...
read 'em and weep

read 'em and weep is this party busted?
the roof's falling down and this drink tastes all wrong
and what's this song? the music's all rusted
everybod'y yellin' and the lights just blew
and that's my cue, when the panic sets in
but the doors are locked and they pulled the pin
so what do we do while the end gets closer?
just sit back brother and enjoy the view

it's like oooh hoo hoo
read em and weep

last one standin' gets to keep the gold monkey
and a shovel full of ashes in a bird-dogs hat
first one landed in a pile o' cash money
honey can you fake it if you wake up fast asleep

read em and weep
