That's the problem, dear, with angry people They try to go it alone Digging in and making cranky feeble pleas That other angries disown Angry people think a good solution Is getting others involved So they surround themselves with happy people And watch their smiles dissolve We just drag them down We just drag them down We just drag them down Until they're just like us Angry people get so sanctimonious Telling us what to do Hoping no one outs them all as phonies just cause We are all phonies too And those of us who once had wives and families Understand what I mean What was once a calm and peaceful refuge Is overtaken by spleen 'Cause we just drag them down We just drag them down We just drag them down Until they're just like us I am the singer in the band We're only trying to lend a hand And though it's not what we had planned We understand That we just drag you down We just drag you down We just drag you down Until you're just like us In a square a thousand angry people Are waving signs in the air (HEY!) While a million other happy people Are trying hard not to care (BACK OFF!) You see, the happy people's biggest problem Is they're never fearing the worst While the rest of us will never sleep until Your happy bubbles are burst Yeah, we just drag them down Didn't I just drag you down Just watch me drag you down Until you're just like us Until you're just like us Oh, until you're just like us Until you're just like us
