D flat major translation in F


Not sure how to work anymore
I will walk to the train
stopping only at corners
or to admire the fortune of others
like the bum, who holds a cup
and I say "I could do that"

But I can't brush my teeth in the morning
rembering that I have the ability to say teeth
as opposed to tooth
which for some is required

I suppose luck don't give a fuck
and maybe it hurts to know this
rembering that I can choose to believe in luck
as opposed to chance
which for some is required

I've never won the lottery
I am bad at bingo
and sometimes birds choose to shit on my head
rembering that I am lucky to have birds
as opposed to not
which for some is required

My favorite yet! I love the snappy thought at the end of each stanza that forces you to pause and think before you move on. Nice repetition. I like how you always come back to the fact that you're a big jerk.

Also,
will you make a series of blacktop pictures that represent all the letters of the alphabet? Please.
