"Yossarian" as written by and John Van Deusen....
Just stop and shut my eyes,
oh, take them backward.
Building character had never seemed this easy
and I'm sure you'll knock me down again.
Personally, it's ruptured judgement.
Superiority is on the ground again.

Your words, they stick to my brain.
I'm a wretch, you notice me, still
know that this wasn't in vain.
But if you are right, call me everything I hate.

I feel I'm something despised,
naked and invisible
as I walk this road.
Eyes beraying and noticing
this hole in my chest bleeding in.

I feel I'm something despised
I'm a wretch, you notice me still
know that this wasn't in vain.
I fear you are right.
I fear you are right.

And I know that you love me still
despite the way I treat them.
And I know that you love them still
despite the way they treat me.

When it all comes down to it,
I'm flesh and bone.
And we acknowledge our own faults
and disabilities.
I will sing of it again!
I will render myself!

Chorus

And I know that you love them still
despite the way they treat...
everything I hate.
