Lyricists' Bill of Rights


You may think it's wrong,
But as a composer of songs,
I have a right to write
Really bad lyrics.

Though I admit that I'm hardly
A Lennon or McCartney,
Even those composers had no
Reason to fear it.

So I resolve to write what comes
No matter now mind-numbingly dumb,
And hope the critics
Will never go near it.
