[music,personal] Oh, I wish that I could be Richard Cory

Имею настроение слушать песни про тесто. И слушаю.

They say that Richard Cory owns one half of this whole town,
With political connections to spread his wealth around.
He was born into society, a banker's only child,
He had everything a man could want: power, grace, and style.

But I work in his factory,
And I curse the life I'm living,
And I curse my poverty.
And I wish that I could be,
Oh, I wish that I could be,
Oh, I wish that I could be
Richard Cory*.

The papers print his picture almost every place he goes:
Richard Cory at the opera, Richard Cory at the shows.
And the rumor of his parties and the orgies on his yacht!
He really must be happy with everything he's got.

But I work in his factory,
And I curse the life I'm living,
And I curse my poverty,
And I wish that I could be,
Oh, I wish that I could be,
Oh, I wish that I could be
Richard Cory.

He freely gave to charity, he had the common touch,
And they were grateful for his patronage, so they thanked him very much,
So my mind was filled with wonder when the evening headlines read:
Richard Cory went home last night and put a bullet through his head.

But I work in his factory,
And I curse the life I'm living,
And I curse my poverty,
And I wish that I could be,
Oh, I wish that I could be,
Oh, I wish that I could be
Richard Cory. 

* — Or John Denver, if you please.
