The Lyrics

This is a collection of things that drive me mad, for various reasons.
Three young sisters - twelve, fourteen and sixteen
All have babies, all been pregnant
Children carry shiny blades into school
Self-defence now? Shouldn't need it

Train passengers attacked by knives, yes
Just this week gone, what is happening?
Watch the news - they seem to think that football's
So important - is it really?

And I find it all so tragic, it really is too sad
Eleven years being good, others at school so bad
I find it hard to explain, It's hard to comprehend
With kids carrying sharp knives

It's a very, very
Mad world
Mad world
Bad world
Bad world

Children hear their A-grades are worthless
On results day, on results day
Two years' study - was it all for nothing?
Well I wonder, yes I wonder
Went back to old job - they asked for passport
Checked I'm British, checked I'm British
Will somebody make it all less crazy?
I just hope so, I just hope so

And I find it all so tragic, I find it just too sad
Dodgy politicians - and yet they don't get sacked
It's hard to comprehend, it's hard to understand

Children are having babies
It's a very, very
Mad world
Mad world
Bad world
Bad world

(instrumental break)

I find it all so messed up, it really is so bad
Summer pay minus tax - it's less than I should have
I don't think I can explain, it doesn't all make sense
Priorities are all wrong
It's a very, very
Mad world
Mad world
Messed right up world
Mad world

5s, your song makes way more sense than the world. Very good.
