Subject: Lyr Add: OH, SCHADENFREUDE (A. Jessup)
Oh Schadenfreude, Oh, Schadenfreude,
The secretest of feelings,
Oh Schadenfreude, oh, Schadenfreude,
Our lizard brains revealing!
When friends succeed, we smile and clap,
But secretly, we mutter "Crap!"
Oh Schadenfreude, oh, Schadenfreude,
Our inner hearts revealing!

Oh Schadenfreude, oh, Schadenfreude,
How lovely is the frisson,
To see those stumble whom we praise
And secretly would piss on!
To celebrate another's woe
Should never be confessed, we know!
Oh Schadenfreude, oh, Schadenfreude,
Our inner Grinch revealing!

Oh Schadenfreude, oh, Schadenfreude,
Life proves those ass holes wrong!
Oh Schadenfreude, oh, Schadenfreude,
The bitter soul's sweet song
To see them trip, or fail or fall
Must be the warmest thrill of all,
Oh Schadenfreude, oh, Schadenfreude,
The secretest of feelings!
