It's All Right For Some

Patrick Cannell 2013
Spot the break,
Spot the deliberate mistake
In the heat
Of a brilliant defeat.

It's all right for some
But it's not all right for others.
It's all right for some
But it's not all right for others.

Spot the crack,
That's a knife in your back.
How cold is the blade
In the hand of a business aide?

It's all right for some
But it's not all right for others.
It's all right for some
But it's not all right for others.

Fingernails
Manicured, never fails.
Blue suit and tie,
Kiss your savings goodbye.

It's all right for some
But it's not all right for others.
Let's allocate the sum
And then dislocate the others.

Life's a bed of nails.
Life's a bed of nails.
Life's a bed of nails.
Life's a bed of nails.

Cut the cake,
Count the pieces you take.
Although, to be fair,
Why should you even care?

It's all right for some
But it's not all right for others.
It's all right for some
But it's not all right for others.

His the lie,
His the deliberate deceit.
He's the guy,
Always lands on his feet.

It's all right for some
But it's not all right for others.
It's all right for some
But it's not all right for others.

Make a will,
Take a nap and a pill
And do what you do
Best, it's all right for you.

It's all right for some
But it's not all right for others.
Let's multiply the sum
And divide and rule the others.

Life's a bed of nails.
Life's a bed of nails.
Life's a bed of nails.
Life's a bed of nails.
