Lyrics- Isn't It Funny? © 17th January 2013

Isn't funny?
Isn't it strange?
That the world keeps on turning,
But, not much has changed

Got house's for rent,
But, no money to buy,
Fat cats, get richer,
While the poor just get by,

So... tell me,
Where have things changed?
So... tell me,
Just, whose to blame?
Is it you,
Or me?
Or the ones, at the top of the tree?

Isn't it funny?
How things turn out,
You spend your whole life working,
What's that all about?

No balance of life,
To enjoy while you can,
Societies large workhouse,
It's as sure as I am!

Chorus repeat x2 to fade
