Pick Up Your Head

Pick up your head
The teacher is teaching

Pick up your head
The preacher is preaching

Pick up your head
The giver is giving

Pick up your head
Your life is worth living

Pick up your head

Pick up your head
The demander's demanding

Pick up your head
Her lips are worth kissing

Pick up your head
Or, you'll miss what you're missing

Pick up your head!

poet Tu Fu

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
