Oh for heaven’s sake get a life
Cos you ain’t causing me any strife
Cos I’m getting on with my life!
You rattle and rattle
You wail
You howl
You scowl
You whine
Oh heck where is the wine?
And oh by the way that is mine!
You spied
You tried
I never cried
Yet here I sit
Wondering what your next step would be
You see
I just don’t give a damn
You’re knotted with envy
You’re not my problem
You’re nobody’s problem
You’re, your own problem
You need to fix it
I cannot control it
I cannot teach you
No one can reach you
Just watch others
Or is that a flipping bother?
Oh what a crying shame
It’s yours to blame
Not others
Just you
So here is the blow you!
You can seethe
But I breathe
Envy can be cut with a chainsaw
That’s all it takes!
No mistake
Just look to others
Enjoy their successes
Not envy them
The grass is not always greener this side
It’s also not greener your side
I don’t envy your successes
Success is hard earnt
Not a given right
We all strive, we all arrive
At different stages
Oh this world is a stage
Where we work and play
Players that should be united
Not divided
With envy or greed
We are one, yet so different
Let the envy go
Not destroy you!
