From the album Doggerel ditties

Lyrics

Individual freedom means you have to choose your way
No one’s there to tell you what to do
Choice can be a burden if you don’t know what to play
Consequences flow from what you choose

Find a voice
Make a choice
Once you know the way to go you’re more than half way there
The rest is mainly blood and sweat and tears

Inspiration springs from nowhere, grab it if you can
Recognize it when it lands on you
Camouflage can make it hard to separate from spam
Learn to sort the false notes from the true

Jump right in
Sink or swim
Problems breed solutions, luck cuts either way
Perseverance often wins the day

There’s no one else to blame if everything goes wrong
The fault may lie in choices that you made
Don’t complain, just try again and sing a better song
Perseverance often wins the day
