JUST A PLAIN SONG

 

This song won't make you smile

Or cause you to cry;

It has no "catchy" new style,

As it passes you by;

It's just a plain song;

Just a plain song.

 

Just a plain song to sing,

In the evening calm,

And no cheers will it bring;

Even, disliked by some;

A plain song has no meaning,

But to fill the air,

With words and music teaming

Into song everywhere.

 

This song won't make you smile

Or cause you to cry;

It has no "catchy" new style,

As it passes you by;

It's just a plain song;

Just a plain song.

 

A plain song is quite simple

And easy to learn;

It talks not of great temples

Or, even, a barn;

Sound the same, in the city,

As down on the farm;

A plain song ain't pretty;

It can't do no harm.

 

This song won't make you smile

Or cause you to cry;

It has no "catchy" new style,

As it passes you by;

It's just a plain song;

Just a plain song.

 

It's just a plain song;

Just a plain song.

Nicely said. Could use a little more upbeat way of putting words.
