A foolish person is the Snob
With silly notions in his knob,
To those who rightly rate him;
He goes and walls himself about
To keep all "common persons" out
Lest they contaminate him,
And on a high and lonesome shelf
He proudly immolates himself.
And so, because he will not meet
The common people in the street
Like Tom and Dick and Harry,
He misses all the joy and fun
Of learning how the world is run
And how life's chances vary.

Nor what retreat he chooses.
If he won't join their work and play
They go serenely on their way
And HE'S the one who loses.
The wise man mixes with the mob.
It takes a fool to be a snob.
