You climb down the mountains and place the flag in the base camp
The town's dignitaries are all alcoholic tramps
The poor live in penthouses and the rich they live in slums
Poor children grade-A students and the rich delinquent bums
Cat burglars leave money in your home
Ring for an appointment when they visit your home
The whores they give you money when with them you have sex
The rapists ask permission and which position is best
The National Galleries are now all filled with fakes
Original old masters can be bought at garden fetes
The best writers and artists always win the prize
The doctors battle hard to stop you from being alive
At your birth everybody breaks down and cries
At your funeral they cheer when you have died
The sky is blue and sunny, you feel down
When it's grim and grey you're as happy as a clown
The world is upside-down
