This really is a marvelous life
Fit and healthy, sharp as a knife
Making money with a bit to spare
Having a home in which to share.
This really is a terrible life
Aches and pains, dull as strife
Deep in debt with none to spare
Having no home and no one to care.
This really could be a marvelous life
Feeling not bad, try butter knife
Making ends meet with a penny to spare
I live in digs and someone did care.
