lyrics

if i only had one leg
if i had no hair on my head
if all my friends and family left
if i was at the steps of death

if i never found a mate
if i lived out in the street
if i never caught a break
if they burn me at the stake

if my nights are always cold
if i don't get to grow old
if i lost my only child
if i am always out of style

if the money never comes
if i lose both of my thumbs
if my lover dies at sea
if no one will remember me

if i am nothing much at all
if i were only four feet tall
if i am hated and despised
by the learned and the wise

if this song is not a hit
still i would count it excrement
next to knowing you and to have seen
the way your eyes have looked at me
