(g. Brooker / K. Reid / M. Noble)

One into one won't go
Two out of three don't know
Time and tide in man's affairs
Trouble always comes in pairs
Wonder where the picture went?
What we got ain't worth a cent
What we got ain't worth a damn
Someone's screwed the master plan

The pursuit of happiness
It's a common goal
The pursuit of happiness
Doing what we're told
The pursuit of happiness
To the very end
It goes 'round and 'round and 'round and 'round again

Bite the bullet in the dust
Got to take their word on thrust
No use counting down your prayers
All god's children running scared
No use howling at the moon
Planet earth is going soon
Starving children stand on line
Living now on borrowed time

The pursuit of happiness
It's a common goal
The pursuit of happiness
Doing what we're told
The pursuit of happiness
To the very end
It goes 'round and 'round and 'round and 'round again
