Part I - The Rape of Solitude

Ugly People



Ugly People

(Chorus) Look around at all the ugly people.
Look around and see them stare at you.
Look around at this poor world around you.
Look around, and tell me skies are blue.

See the little children playing with their toys,
Dolls for the little girls, trucks for the boys.
See the little black girl; she wants to play;
Hear the children laugh at her, chasing her away.

Hello, How are you? Well, I guess I'm doing fine;
I don't want to bother you with what's been on my mind
Hello, How are you? Well, I guess I'm doing swell,
Doing fine and dandy
, guess I wish you'd go to...

Look around... (Repeat Chorus)

See the man in black; he is mourning for his friend.
"He was such a good man; his life didn't have to end!"
You say that he was honest, loyal, strong, and brave...
Would you give him your cozy bed, and lie inside his grave?

Hello, Missus Land, would you like a cup of tea?
Have you heard the news about the Brewster family?
Hello, Missus Dillon, have you heard the word?
Yes, and I have told you even more than I have heard.

Look around at all the ugly people.
Look around and see them stare at you.
Look around at this poor world around you.
Look around, and tell me skies are blue.
