DORIS LESSING

"They ask, What is your routine? How do you write? Do you use a processor, a fountain pen, a quill? Do you write in the mornings or perhaps at night? Do you ...? Hidden in this kind of questioning is the belief that there is some trick or secret recipe; this is because all one needs to write is a biro and an exercise book, a provisioning that gives an illusion of ease. Alas, no, the trick, the recipe, is hard work."
Doris Lessing, Time Bites

The man who only live for making money
Lives a life that isn't necessarily sunny;
Likewise the man who works for fame --
There's no guarantee that time won't erase his name
The fact is
The only work that really brings enjoyment
Is the kind that is for girl and boy meant.
Fall in love -- you won't regret it.
That's the best work of all -- if you can get it.
Holding hands at midnight
'Neath a starry sky...

Oh that is nice work if you can get it.
And you can get it -- if you try.
Strolling with the one girl
Sighing sigh after sigh...
Oh nice work if you can get it.
And you can get it -- if you try.

Just imagine someone
Waiting at the cottage door.
Where two hearts become one...
Who could ask for anything more?

Loving one who loves you,
And then taking that vow...
Nice work if you can get it,
And if you get it --

Won't you tell me how?

And you can get it -- if you try.
And you can get it -- if you try.
And you can get it -- if you try.
And you can get it -- if you try

Holding hands at midnight
'Neath a starry sky...
Nice work if you can get it
And you can get it -- if you try.
Strolling with the one girl
Sighing sigh after sigh...
Nice work if you can get it
And you can get it -- if you try
Who could ask for anything more?
