Welcome To The World

Updated: Oct 24


copyright 2020 dalekiddlyrics.com

The man in the middle

had an alibi of sorts

He wasn’t near the bank

when robbed by cohorts

Behind bushy eyebrows

an unpredictable side

A mix of injustice

and callous male pride

So welcome to the world

it’s a good place to be

You know you owe me nothing

but nothing’s for free


You can't take it with you

so just let it be

You don't owe me nothing

and nothing's for free

Did she want a soul mate

or a business partner?

He wasn’t quite sure

it didn’t really matter

Put her mind on lock down

at age twenty-four

Proudly passed at fifty

wouldn't open the door

So welcome to the world

it’s a good place to be

You know you owe me nothing

but nothing’s for free


You can't take it with you

so just let it be

You don't owe me nothing

and nothing's for free

Welcome to the show

let’s let the magic flow

Seems like it started

a long time ago

Shake off your shadow

run up a rainbow

Then join all the people

making all the dough

So welcome to the world

it’s a good place to be

You know you owe me nothing

but nothing’s for free


You can't take it with you

so just let it be

You don't owe me nothing

and nothing's for free

Swinging scales of justice

spun out of control

Then lawless bloodletting

took a sinister role


The vindictive ones are here

forgivers over there

What chance have forgivers

when evil’s in the square

So welcome to the world

it’s a good place to be

You know you owe me nothing

but nothing’s for free


You can't take it with you

so just let it be

You don't owe me nothing

and nothing's for free

He stepped into the world

hoped he’d be a winner

Now he’s gotten older

feels like a beginner

It’s hard to be young

when you start getting old

Up is tough, when you’re down

why be scared when you’re bold?

So welcome to the world

it’s a good place to be

You know you owe me nothing

but nothing’s for free


You can't take it with you

so just let it be

You don't owe me nothing

and nothing's for free
