From the album Doggerel ditties

Lyrics

This is a revision of my track Exercise Your Lungs brilliantly re-engineered by Ulf Kjell Gur

A song can lead an army and help you win a war
A song can mourn the fallen though they may hear no more
A battle hymn to march to and fill your foes with fear
A requiem for resting the ones who see no tears

Songs possess immortal life
Exercise your lungs
Cut down barriers like a knife
In universal tongues

A song to woo a target and capture someone’s heart
That song can be remembered when you are far apart
A memory of that moment can stay with you for life
And help you through your torment in later times of strife

Songs possess immortal life
Exercise your lungs
Cut down barriers like a knife
In universal tongues

A song to soothe the spirit or pacify the soul
To mend a broken heart or fill an empty hole
To stimulate reflection or wallow in “Yer Blues”
To prompt a changed direction or start a life anew…
