Lyric of the Week: NEVER WRITE A SONG

Never write a song in the afternoon

Never write a song once you’ve eaten your lunch

Never write a song when the day is ¾ gone

Never write a song once you’ve been beaten to the punch

Never write a song when you’re riding on a train

Never write a song when you’re driving your car

Never write a song when you’re waiting for your flight

Never write a song with the door ajar

But if the song comes to you, write it down

No matter where or when it might be

They find their way to you in the least likely moments

So accept them as gifts, graciously.

Never write a song when you’ve knocked off for the day

Never write a song on the road

Never write a song once you’ve kicked your legs up

Never write a song when you carry a load

Never write a song as you tremble before G-d

Never write a song when you’re confused

Never write a song when you’ve wrapped up for the night

Never write a song in high-heeled shoes

But if the song …


Never write a song on the midnight ride

Never write a song when you’re in the pink

Never write a song when you’re cluttered up

Never write a song when you can’t think

Never write a song when your neighbors jabber

Never write a song when your SO talks

Never write a song when your guard is up

Never write a song when your resolve balks

But if the song …

But I only give you a list of sorts

Where it never seems to work for me

The bottom line is

You can write where you damn well please.
