It's Great To Be You

It's Great To Be You

You were born of privilege and you never had a worry or a care
I could say I knew you but you never even knew I was there
Now that you’re gone
Who knows how long
Fate can’t be wrong
It’s great to be you

You got the promotion while I slaved away to make my ends meet
You got the boss’s daughter and a mistress who was quite indiscreet
Now that you’re gone
Who knows how long
Fate can’t be wrong
It’s great to be you

I saw my chance there was nothing much to it
Wealth and romance how could I just refuse it
So I splattered your name in the media pages
Scandal and shame so I offered my name in your place
I took a big lead in the race

Now I keep your ladies got your job and I belong to your club
Last I heard you lost your house and spent the night asleep in a pub
Now that you’re gone
Who knows how long
Fate can’t be wrong
It’s great to be you
It’s great to be you
