Isn't it quite funny? Isn't it just sad,
how we worship money, even if it's bad?
Isn't it quite stupid? Isn't it just scum,
how we worship cupid, even if it's dumb?
Isn't it quite randy? Isn't it just lust,
how we worship candy, even if it's bust?
Isn't it quite cruel? Isn't it just spleen,
how we worship gruel, even if it's mean?
Isn't it quite phony? Isn't it just vaunt,
how we worship bony, even if it's gaunt?
Isn't it quite mulish? Isn't it just stiff,
how we worship foolish, even if it's miff?
Isn't it quite risky? Isn't it just guts,
how we worship whisky, even if it's nuts?
Isn't it quite woeful? Isn't it just grief,
how we worship doleful, even if it's brief?
