"Try a Little Sadness" as written by Peter Gabriel, Anthony Banks, Anthony Edwin Phillips and Michael Rutherford....
If you see another staring straight at you
Take his life and change it, that's what you always do
You're still in the days of childhood
Where everything is wrong and no good
I can see what you're trying
What you're trying to be
Let me tell you now

Try a little sadness baby
Try a little sadness baby
Try a little sadness
Or you love will never be found

[Push a pink Dalmatian?] out into the street
So you laugh, but cry when it comes to bite your feet
You say it's fun to live
Where there's always take and no give
Don't you see that where you're living
There's a world of sin?

Try a little sadness baby
Try a little sadness baby
Try a little sadness
Or you love will never be found

You always hide your loving
Before it's gone and too late
Things are changing, you're remaining
Leave it and come with me
Let me tell you now

Try a little sadness baby
Try a little sadness baby
Try a little sadness
Or you love will never be found

Try a little sadness baby
Try a little sadness baby
Try a little sadness baby
Try a little sadness baby
