Schadenfreude

D                 A
Right now you are down and out
Bm                 G
and feeling really crappy
    D              A
And when I see how sad you are
   Bm                   B
It sort of makes me...  Happy!

E             A
Sorry, Nicky, human nature-
D             B
Nothing I can do!
          G      A
It's...   Schadenfreude!
G              A                 D
Making me feel glad that I'm not you.

          D           A
Did you ever clap when a waitress falls
    Bm              G
and drops a tray of glasses?
    D                     A
And ain't it fun to watch figure skaters
Bm               B
falling on their asses?

E                  A
Don't you feel all warm and cozy,
D                          B
Watching people out in the rain!
          G      A
That's... Schadenfreude!
G             A                D
People taking pleasure in your pain!

What's that, some kinda Nazi word?
Yup! It's German for happiness at the misfortune of others.

Who've been knocked around by fate
