"Life Is Never Wrong" as written by and Janis Ian....
Feast or famine, God or Mammon
priest or shaman – opposites attract
Saints and sinners, losers, winners
rank beginners – there’s no going back
My old man was a dreamer
Dreamed his life away
Sometimes dreams are realler
than the roles we play
Daddy used to say

You don’t walk another man’s path
You don’t sing another man’s song
and you don’t pay the whores of Babylon
The road is never straight
The way is always long
but one thing I can say before I’m gone
Life is never wrong

People used to laugh and say
You never ought to make the truth your bride
Marry money, fill your tummy
Only junkies live to get that high
My first love was beauty
She tried so hard to please
Then she introduced me to the beast
Knocked me to my knees

You don’t walk another man’s path
You don’t sing another man’s song
and you don’t pay the whores of Babylon
The road is never straight
The way is always long
but one thing I can say before I’m gone
Life is never wrong

Hold your head up high
no matter what the weight
Look life in the eye, don’t hesitate
Life won’t wait

You don’t walk another man’s path
You don’t sing another man’s song
and you don’t pay the whores of Babylon
The road is never straight
The way is always long
but one thing I can say before I’m gone
Life is never wrong
