If there's a swan and a duck in the pond
And everybody's looking at the swan
In her shiny, white-feather coat
It'll make the duck so bitter

If the swan can teach you soccer tricks
Or sit and talk, if it calls for it
And the duck stands tall on condescending ground
If her tactic fails, she'll fall so far down
She should have sat and quacked with us
Because it made the duck so bitter

If the duck can't even laugh
Without being sarcastic
What's the chance she'll tell us something we'll enjoy
And the swan could open ears
With what she has to say
Her quacking choir chorus
If the duck listens with envy
It'll make the duck so bitter

If the duck sucks the happiness
From anybody in her path
She should be glad enough by now
But she's still toneless as her laugh
And the swan instead just radiates
In her shiny, white, feather coat
I think I'd rather be hanging out with the swan right now
But it would make the duck so bitter

And that'll make the swan seem so much better
Even if she's not better

But if the swan isn't touchy-feely
If she can hardly leave her pond
She's not so perfect after all
Then again I guess nobody is
But she's as damn well close as anyone got
Or as anyone will be, well I hope not
I hope there more like her around
'Cause this pond's filling up with ducks
That I can't stand
They're all so bitter
And I'm betting the swan will turn out bitter
'Cause almost everyone I know so far has turned out bitter
I'm also betting soon I'll turn out bitter
