  • Now who's to judge who's a saint and who's a sinner
    Lord, it's tough enough to trudge from brunch to dinner
    We seek the light of truth between our white lies
    We sleep away our youth under tattletale skies

    Now who's to say who's a sinner and who's a saint
    Who's to say who you can love and who you can't
    Now it's easy for the pot to call the kettle black
    They're just jealous of the hot and lusty sordid lives they led

    Ain't it a bitch sortin' out our sordid lives
    It's a bitch when you come to realize
    got yourself a box of Cracker Jacks
    then you get a really shitty prize
    It's a bitch sortin' out our sordid lives

    Now we struggled comin' down the chute to take our first breath
    and we struggle for acceptance from birth to death
    But the Lord's too busy tryin' to keep the world on it's feet
    He ain't got time to give a damn about what goes on between the sheets

    Ain't it a bitch sortin' out our sordid lives
    It's a bitch when you come to realize
    got yourself a box of Cracker Jacks
    then you get a really shitty prize
    It's a bitch sortin' out our sorry little sordid lives
