He sits there, with that smile
You’ve seen a thousand times
Crossing the lips of folks
Who know they’re getting away
And there’s nothing you can do

Unearned man in unearned chair
Get him in there, they said
And it won’t matter how he did
Get him in there, they said
And it’ll be hard to get him out

They say we need to face facts
They say we need to be realistic
Work with him, give him a chance
It’s really not so bad, is it
That he doesn’t fit the chair

And as they speak, you see the smile
They didn’t need to face facts
They didn’t need to be realistic
They just did, confident in the fact
That they would get away with it
As they always have and always will
