Right and Wrong is Now a Song

Kris Anderson has put just about the most unexpected music imaginable to some of my words.
I love it!

The words of the original poem – Right and Wrong – are shown below.


You tell me I will soon forget
That you already can’t remember
But you are sunshine in July
And I’m the east wind in November

I tell you that you’re always right
You tell me that I’m wrong
I say I want to stay with you
You say I don’t belong

You bring the music to my life
You are my favourite song
You tell me I am out of tune
When I try to sing along

You never want for company
Without you I’m all alone
You stand above adoring hordes
I am soon lost in the throng

You ask me why I hang around
Why don’t I just move on
Perhaps there’s nothing better than
The agony prolonged

I know I never will forget
And you will not remember
You’re the Cote d’Azur in mid-July
I am Scotland in November

    This is so exciting!
    Congratulations to the musician for bringing out the music that was already there, and to the poet who can and does inspire its expression.
