Don't hold out for pity
besieged within your frightened city
the plans are laid but can they be changed
there's a man going round taking names again
the morning paper
tells tales of fresh disaster
and who'd care to say at the end of the day
that they'd live happy ever after

Memo to my enemies
time is slipping by
don't put no plans in the hands of the man
ride blue divide

Boy cupid the smiler's gun
fired her heart but it couldn't be won
they hads plans that didn't agree
so they take their chances on a climbing tree
climbing tree climbing tree
the guilded cage of possibility
who could say it wouldn't be fun
you climb to the top take the money and run


Blow away the stangers
those doggies in their mangers
the old men know which way they think it should go
and how they'd like to rearrange us
so strike out the fearless hunter
her heart will never waver
he spread his cloak and wound up broke
to win a lady's favour
