THE WORLD IS A BEAUTIFUL PLACE...







	   The world is a beautiful place

					      to be born into

if you don't mind happiness

				 not always being so very much fun

       if you don't mind a touch of hell

 					    now and then

		just when everything is fine

				     because even in heaven 

			      they don't sing 

					      all the time



	   The world is a beautiful place

					        to be born into

       if you don't mind some people dying

						       all the time

		     or maybe only starving

					         some of the time

		which isn't half so bad


					      if it isn't you



Oh the world is a beautiful place 

					 to be born into

         if you don't much mind 

				   a few dead minds

	      in the higher places

				     or a bomb or two

		   now and then

				     in your upturned faces

   or such other improprieties 
		
		    as our Name Brand society

		         is prey to

				  with its men of distinction

	and its men of extinction

				       and its priests

		and other patrolmen

					and its various segregations
    and congressional investigations

					     and other constipations

	         that our fool flesh

					is heir to




    Yes the world is the best place of all

				         for a lot of such things as

	making the fun scene

				       and making the love scene

 and making the sad scene

	     and singing low songs and having inspirations

        and walking around

				looking at everything

					   and smelling flowers

        and goosing statues

			      and even thinking

					      and kissing people and

	     making babies and wearing pants

						 and waving hats and

				         dancing

		     and going swimming in rivers

			         on picnics

				         in the middle of the summer

		and just generally

					'living it up'



  Yes

     but then right in the middle of it

					   comes the smiling

				  mortician
