A stringent denunciation of pride
Our bitter pride we have inside
Can make us sad and lonely
Our reckless youth is not the one
And not the only
Part of life we live in strife,
It seems it never ends
We want a wife, we want a life
We want good and clever friends
But it is so hard to learn
That the life we earn
Can never be satisfied
We have our money
We have our pride
We all have something
That aches inside.
