Did he ever live,
In those three and twenty years,
For a thing but movement and location?

If she'd raised her voice,
Not her sparkling shallow eyes,
To indict my movement and location,
Would the battle be lost?

You can watch the tape,
You can try to hit your spots,
But don't do it for anything
But the thrill of movement and location,
Or the battle is lost.
