Doggerel for Caferati

You can sing the blues,
You can pay your dues,
You can try, and still lose,
There's no money back.

Yeah.

You can’t expect it,
You can’t demand it,
You can deserve it,
And still not get it.

You can be bold, shy,
You can despair, cry,
You can ask God why.
But you can’t do jack.

Sad.

You can’t expect it,
You can’t demand it,
You can deserve it,
And still not get it.

You can do it all right,
You can fight the good fight,
You can spend lonely nights
Put your head on the tracks.

But.

You can’t expect it,
You can’t demand it,
You can deserve it,
And still not get it.

Gotta tell you this, baby:
You gotta do it for free,
There are no guarantees
For love and feedback.

No.

You can’t expect it,
You can’t demand it,
You can deserve it,
And still not get it.
