Malvina Reynolds: Song Lyrics and Poems  


Notes: by Malvina Reynolds; copyright 1967 by the author. From page 88 of the collection "Inscriptions on a Ginger Jar," printed in the songbook The Muse of Parker Street.

Live through this time.
Get through the day.
The dialectitians say
The only thing certain is change,
And if you can somehow arrange
To get through this day,
The curse
That hangs over you
Will go away,
Or get worse.
