The world would be better off
if people tried to become better.
And people would become better
if they stopped trying to become
For when everybody tries to become
nobody is better off.
But when everybody tries to become
everybody is better off.
Everybody would be rich
if nobody tried to become richer.
And nobody would be poor
if everybody tried to be the poorest.
And everybody would be what he
ought to be
if everybody tried to be
what he wants the other fellow to be.
