"Congratulations" as written by and Paul Simon....
Congratulations!
Oh, seems like you've done it again,
And
I ain't had such misery since
I don't know when,
Oh, and I don't know when,
Oh, and I don't know when.

I notice so many people slippin' away,
And many more waiting in the lines
In the courtrooms today,
Oh, in the courtrooms today.

Love is not a game,
Love is not a toy,
Love's no romance.
Love will do you in, and love will wash you out,
And needless to say you won't stand a chance,
And you won't stand a chance.

I'm hungry for learnin',
Won't you answer me, please.
Can a man and a woman live together in peace,
Oh, live together in peace?

    General CommentI think this song is about divorce and how hard love is. I'm in misery, and there are a lot of other people in court lines because they're in misery, too. Can we ever learn to live with another person?
