The song tells the tale of a Richard Cory from the perspective of one of the men that works in his factory. The factory worker is envious of the advantages and enjoyments available to Cory, believing him (Cory) to be a satisfied man. The last verse of the song ends similarly to the Robinson poem: "Richard Cory went home last night and put a bullet through his head." The chorus repeats again after this verse.

    This is probably just me, but the beginning of this song reminds me of The Beatles during their early years.
