Song-of-the-Week #18: “Learn to Lose”

A theme-message that’s been with me over the past couple of years–learn to looooose. A-ha. A clue/cue to relief. Thanks again to Paul Curreri for doing a fine job of engineering and helping to produce this recording.

All of the signs say
Learn to lose
Learn to lose
Learn to lose

Backwater brack flowin’ over my shoes
Learn to lose
Learn to lose
Learn to lose

Pickin’ through the ragpile–
Whose is whose?
Learn to lose

What have you now?
Whatever you choose

Old ball wreckin’ me now
Oh it’s long, I don’t know how
Old ball reckonin’ me now
Oh it’s long, I don’t know how

All of the signs say
Learn to lose
Learn to lose
Learn to lose
Give a little blood to the bruise…

Pickin’ through the ragpile–
Whose is whose?
Learn to lose

What have you now?
What have you now?
What have you now?
Whatever you choose
