JOY WITHOUT PLEASURE

 

When I was a little kid

And all the people they looked big 

I never exactly understood

How to tell the trees from the wood

 

 Joy without Pleasure

Ain't no fun, ain't no fun at all

Joy without Pleasure

Ain't no fun, ain't no fun at all

 

 My Mama she took me aside one day

She said you better have fun while you play

'Cause someday you'll wake up and you'll be old

And all of your youth will be gone away

And you'll work in a factory and you'll earn your pay

And your fingers will rot and your mind will decay

You'll be happy, so happy with your family and house

But you'll never, you'll never enjoy yourself 

 

 Joy without Pleasure

Ain't no fun, ain't no fun at all

Joy without Pleasure

Ain't no fun, ain't no fun at all

 

 The son of Charles Dickens and a little red hen

Danced the watusi like it was a sin

They tried to enjoy it but they feel so guilty

Guilt won't allow you to enjoy a stolen apple

 

 Joy without Pleasure

Ain't no fun, ain't no fun at all

Joy without Pleasure

Ain't no fun

 

Joy without pleasure

Ain't no fun
