I was standing with my paper there
Minding my own news
For everything that someone said
Someone else had a different view

I watched the whole thing there
Unfold upon my TV screen
"A new world order is on its way"
Well, pass the popcorn, please
You don't mean to tell me
No one here is going to get hurt
When there's folks at home
Who eat dog food that can't afford a shirt
But sure find out real fast just who's a sitting duck
When it's a

Mad, mad world
Shake your hands and say good luck, it's a
Mad, mad world
I can not believe this stuff, it's a
Mad mad world
getting madder every day
Mad, mad world
get involved and they'll blow you away
You sure find out real fast when you're a sitting duck
That it's a mad, mad world

A little man sits up way high
Way up above the crowd
Can you make them dance real fast?
Can you make them cheer real loud?

Money doesn't talk, it swears
It sounds like a big machine
A voice on high says, "you reap what you sow
Just keep your own nose clean"

More smoke fills up the air
More toxins up the creek
And that's when the cash, it changes hands
So we turn the other cheek
Sure find out real fast just when you've had enough
That it's a

Mad, mad world
Shake your hands and say good luck
Mad, mad world
I can not believe this stuff, it's a
Mad, mad world
Getting madder every day
Mad, mad world
Get involved and they blow you away
You sure find out real fast when you're a sitting duck
That it's a mad, mad world

He walks into the office and
He finds a big pink slip
It says, "you are no longer needed
So won't you take a good long trip"
You can take your gold watch
And stick it you know where
'Cause he's fired up and he's jacked up and
He's loaded up for bear

Mad, mad world
Shake your hands and say good luck, it's a
Mad, mad world
I can not believe this stuff, it's a
Mad, mad world
Getting madder every day
Mad, mad world
Get involved and they blow you away
You sure find out real fast when you're a sitting duck
That it's a mad, mad world
Oh, that's right, it's a

Mad, mad world
Get involved and they blow you away, it's a
Mad, mad world
Getting madder every day, it's a
Mad, mad world

Mad, mad world
Mad, mad world
Mad, mad world
