I was listening to an English version of the Threepenny Opera when I drew this. The music's catchy, and the lyrics (originally written by Bertolt Brecht and translated by R. Mannheim and J. Willett*) are biting.
Take these samples from the end of the first act:
But say your son is close to you
And finds your pension’s not come through
He’ll kick you smartly in the face.
And so will all the human race.
Of course that’s all there is to itThe world is poor, and man’s a $#!+We should aim high instead of lowBut our condition’s such this can’t be so.
*bad word bleeped out by me, but I'm sure you can figure out what it is.
