1. The Trapper and the Furrier

    The trapper and the furrier went walking through paradise
    And all the animals lay clawless and toothless before them
    And all the mother's stepped away from their babies
    Leaving them open and easy to handle
    The trapper and the furrier went walking through paradise
    They took some for now and they got some for later
    And they marveled at the pelts, not a bullet hole in them
    And they filled up the cages with pets for their children

    What a strange, strange world we live in
    Where the good are damned and the wicked forgiven
    What a strange, strange world we live in
    Those who don't have lose, those who got get given
    More, more, more, more

    The owner and the manager went walking through paradise
    And all the shelves were filled with awards and achievements
    And on every corner, a power presentation
    And on every floor, an army of workers
    The owner and the manager went walking through paradise
    And all their charts showed so much promise and progress
    No sick days, no snow days, no unions, no taxes
    And they wandered towards home, kings of their castles

    What a strange, strange world we live in
    Where the good are damned and the wicked forgiven
    What a strange, strange world we live in
    Those who don't have lose, those who got get given
    More, more, more, more

    The lawyer and the pharmacist went walking through paradise
    And all the sick were around and with fevers unbreaking
    Crying and bleeding and coughing and shaking
    And arms out stretched, prescription collecting
    The lawyer and the pharmacist went walking through paradise
    Pressed suits in a courtroom, aroma of chloroform
    And they smiled at the judge, disposition so sunny
    Cause they didn't have the cure but sure needed the money

    What a strange, strange world we live in
    Where the good are damned and the wicked forgiven
    What a strange, strange world we live in
    Those who don't have lose, those who got get given
    More, more, more, more

    More, more, more, more
    More, more, more, more
    More, more, more, more
    More, more, more, more
