There's a lot of greed
and a lot of envy too.
It's the nature of the beast
that's a part of you.

Man is still part-animal,
and - girl - so are you.
Maybe not an animal
that belongs in a zoo.

And there are some, of course,
far worse than you.
They make life a jungle,
oh yes it is damn true.

With loaves and fishes
Christ, we hear, fed the needing.
They walked all over kindness,
on a cross left him bleeding.

I've been too good to you.
You're just not ever satisfied.
He who does is best for you
ends up being crucified.
