The Lyrics

Sometimes I get annoyed with my body because I have Cerebral Palsy. Other times I think I'm bloody lucky for all the blessings I have
Both Sides

Dreams and schemes and fantasy
Stories that would come to me
Great I.Q capability
I’ve seen my brain that way
But my cerebellum’s is half dead
And no-one gets a word I’ve said
And I need to be washed, dressed and fed
An unfair price to pay

I’ve viewed my brain from both sides now
As bright and broke and yet some how
There’s still some morons’ think I’m thick
Sometimes my brain gets on my wick

Shakes and quakes and moving strange
With gestures that sometimes look deranged
A list of things I like to change
I’ve seen my bod that way
But ‘bout my looks I don’t feel sad
Look in the mirror, say ‘Not bad,
If guys don’t like me, they must be mad,
Either that or gay!’

I’ve viewed bod in both ways now
As impaired and babe and yet somehow
I really don’t know diddly swat
I’ll make the best of what I’ve got!

I used to work as a commodity futures broker a long time ago. One of the customers who came into our office every day had cerebral palsy. Despite his disadvantages, he earned more $100,000 in profits during the time I worked there, while just about all our other customers lost money. To this day, I can't think of anyone I've known who was more able to put aside his weaknesses and capitalize on his strengths than this guy. Your song brought back fond memories of him. Thanks - 555
