Whatever You Say

(by Shaun Sykes)

Composed on March 19, 1996


WHO CAN ARGUE
WHAT'S THE USE?
YOUR WORDS GRAB ME
LIKE A NOOSE.

ARE YOU RIGHT
EVERY TIME?
I THINK THAT
YOU'VE CROSSED THE LINE!

MUST WE ALWAYS
FUSS AND FIGHT?
MY VIEW'S DIM
AND YOURS IS BRIGHT.

WHATEVER YOU SAY,
ISTEP DOWN
YOU HAVE THE BALL
YOU CIRCUS CLOWN!
