Malvina Reynolds: Song Lyrics and Poems  


Notes: by Malvina Reynolds; copyright 1967 by the author. From page 90 of the collection "Inscriptions on a Ginger Jar," printed in the songbook The Muse of Parker Street.

Some folks think all you have to do is jump around
To get a new sound.
Others believe that, if you want to avoid singing sweetly,
You have to know all the rules in order to violate them completely.
