    LEMONADE

    Let's not be precious
    Life takes gauze and glue
    Wild eyes will get us there
    On our coconut hooves

    Rising tides bring trouble
    Strand old tubs upon the sand
    Navigate these shallows
    Chase birds with our bare hands

    We don't want to be special
    We'd have too much to lose
    Line up the world's lemons
    Suck them all and choose
    Make some lemonade
    Or lose

    Diamonds on the table
    Hearts upon on their knees
    A tragedy of clubs and spades
    In a hand of cards as lame as these

    So trickle down you pennies
    Quench my thirsty purse
    Chase away the bitter birds who
    Peck bare earth and dream of worms

    I don't need to be special
    Though I have so much to lose
    Line up the world's lemons
    Suck them all and choose
    Make some lemonade or lose
    Drink some lemonade or
    You lose

    Yes. For the doughty battlers who cannot afford a real horse.

    As well as for Arthur, King of the Britons!

    I like it. The last line is intense.
