They say that Richard Cory owns one half of this whole town,
Born into society, a banker's only child,

And I curse the life I'm living
And I wish that I could be,
Oh, I wish that I could be

Richard Cory at the opera, Richard Cory at a show.
Oh, he surely must be happy with everything he's got.
But I work in his factory
And I curse my poverty
Oh, I wish that I could be,
Richard Cory.
He freely gave to charity, he had the common touch,
So my mind was filled with wonder when the evening headlines read:

And I curse the life I'm living
And I wish that I could be,
Oh, I wish that I could be
