Try to take the
Wooden spoon
And like it

Try to take your
And lump it

Try to do the decent
Thing and
Rue it

Try to be a decent
And be dumpit

Try and see the lightning
Rod and
Thole it

Try and take the
Other road
And feast it

Try and take
The lesser silver
And forget it

Try and take
Your life apart
And piece it

Try and see the
Jigsaw whole -
Not hate it

Try and be
The woman soul

Try and
Live your life
Not fight it
