Well, there is always a Fly in the Ointment
There is always a Grub in the Bud,
There is always a Snake in the Garden
There is always a Stick in the Mud.
Yes, there is always a Worm in the Apple
A Joker in every Pack,
There is always a Backseat Driver
And a Catch in every Contract.
There is always a Dog in the Manger
And a Critic in every Crowd,
There is always a Hiccup,
a Flaw that is Fatal,
Or a Thumb that is Sore
and Sticks Out.
No there is nothing straight forward or simple
When dealing with Dem-oc-racy,
There’s always some Crackpot
holding things back, but
Sometimes that Crackpot is Me,
Oh it’s True
And sometimes that Crackpot is You!
