Song: “Change” by Tracy Chapman from Where You Live
(Picture taken from http://article.wn.com)
Change is no fun
Change is so overdone.
I do not think I shall change today,
Now please do go away.
The change you sell,
It interests me not.
It sounds quite a bit like hell,
And your words on the matter are tying me in a knot.
This change you boast of,
Strikes me as distasteful.
Besides I am busy with a pig, roast of
I have not a moment for your arguments, however graceful.
The thing you see
Is I am me.
As me I’ve survived
And I will not risk that because others have thrived.
Change is not promising, you understand
Change is just disappointment, inevitably.
The status quo, there’s a choice worthy of a stand
For we know it so well and unquestionably.
So take your change, dear sir,
Take it somewhere where they might be interested in a stir.
Here, we much prefer things the way they are.
We can grasp no possible reason to expand a repertoire.
Understand, if things improve
How will we complain?
And if things, generally downward move
How oh how will we justify all this champagne.
So please, sir, please
Allow us to accept, without protest or hope, our idiosyncrasies
Your change is much too scary
Perhaps we’ll be more in the mood next January?
