Schadenfreude

Section 1:

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! 

Oh, Schadenfreude, huh?
What's that, some kinda Nazi word?
Yup! It's German for happiness at the misfortune of others.
Happiness at the misfortune of others. That IS German!

Section 2:

D         A
Watching a vegetarian
      Bm                G
being told she just ate chicken
   D                  A
Or watching a frat boy realize
     Bm              B
just what he put his dick in!

E           A
Being on an elevator 
D                             B
when somebody shouts "Hold the door!"  NO!!!
G     A
Schadenfreude!
G              A                     D
"Fuck you lady, that's what stairs are for!"

D
Straight-A students getting Bs?
A
Exes getting STDs!
Bm
Waking doormen from their naps!
G
Watching tourists reading maps!
D
Football players getting tackled!
A
CEOs getting shackled!
Bm
Watching actors never reach
B
The ending of their Oscar speech!

Section 3:

D                           A
The world needs people like you and me
Bm                           G
Who've been knocked around by fate
D                              A
Cuz when people see us they don't wanna be us
    Bm                  B
and that makes them feel great

E           A
We provide a vital service
D       B
to society
              G      A
you and me... Schadenfreude
G                 A
Making the world a better place
G                 A
Making the world a better place
G                 A
Making the world a better place
   D
to be

                          D
