Tag: Love /

When I first got my job 
They paid me seventeen a week 
I'll bet another two-buck raise 
When I've the nerve to speak 
And if you don't I'll still love you 
You're always right no matter what you do 

I'd rather be right  than influential 
I'd rather be right  than wealthy and wise 
I don't come through, dear, 
Where brains belong 
But pertaining to you, dear 
I can't go wrong 
I'd rather be right  than presidential 
Let other folk fight for heights above 
What do i fight for? 
Kist to be right , for 
I'd rather be right 
Just rather about love!
