WHAT ARE THEY DOING TO US NOW? (Streisand Barbra)

As we get older, there's nothing surer The rich get richer, the poor get poorer Those small misfortunes all start to pile up And it gets harder to keep a smile up But we keep hoping, while all dreams linger That we'll get lucky one fine day Then once again fate gives us the finger Once again with a sigh We look up to the sky With a quizzical eye And quietly say: What are they doing to us now? What's the latest ruin to us now? Someone up there is getting careless What are they doing to us now? Anyhow, what are they doing to us now? Makes no difference if a man is slave or king born He always is to pain and suffering Naked, he's pushed out his new life to begin Ain't or not The awkward way that he came in? When did he understand just why he's here Clap comes from the dark A big smack on the rear From then on continuous without a stop Ah, life's the same old story Clop, clop, clop, clop, clop, clop Science keeps advancing always on the run All they seem to do is take from life the fun Smoking, on and on, It wears your heart away Drinking shrinks for you the level day by day Eating makes you fat You weighted down to check Sex you do, you don't, you'll have a nervous wreck Future generations we are all to one Hey, then do yourself a favor: don't get born, Don't get born, don't get born! What are they doing to us now? What's the latest ruin to us now? Careless, what are they doing to us now? What are they doing... What are they doing... What are they doing... What are they doing... What are they doing to us now?
