COMPARISON

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


              I.  the source of all pain
                  under the sun;
                  the source of the serpent,
                  envy and sin;
                  the source of all pride
                  and persecution;
                  the source of all progress
                  and revolution:
                  comparison,
                  comparison.

             II.  compared with yesterday
                  or what might have been,
                  the one who went away,
                  the prize you'll never win --
                  you can call it pain,
                  you can call it depression,
                  you can call it sadness,
                  but it's just an expression of
                  comparison,
                  comparison,
                  comparison,
                  comparison.

            III.  Wall Street jumping from the window
                  when two million turns to one.
                  all the folks down in the ghetto
                  never knew the difference.
                  comparison,
                  comparison,
                  comparison,
                  comparison.

             IV.  you're cryin' 'cause you have no hat,
                  like a coward in combat.
                  think of Marie Antoinette,
                  in her grave without a head.
                  comparison,
                  comparison.

              V.  thinking that it could be better,
                  nothing makes me more upset.
                  thinking that it could be worse,
                  maybe I can break the curse of
                  comparison,
                  comparison,
                  comparison,
                  comparison.
