That's What Some Say - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

If it's wanted you've got to be bold.
You can't hold back,
Be bold.
If it's wanted you've got to be bold.
To get what is wished...
Be bold!
If it's wanted you've got to be bold.
You can't hold back,
Be bold.
If it's wanted you've got to be bold.
To get what is wished...
Be bold!

That's what some say,
But...
If you're the kind that's nice and sweet.
With a recipe that can't be beat.
And if eyes pop out from addicted heads,
With a taste that stays in their minds instead.
Then you don't need to be...
So bold.
Like others who have sold their souls,
Being bold.

If it's wanted you've got to be bold...
That's what some say.
But...
If you're the kind that's nice and sweet.
With a recipe that can't be beat.
Then you don't need to be...
So bold.
Like others who have sold their souls,
Being bold.

If it's wanted you've got to be bold!
That's what some say.
If it's wanted you've got to be bold!
That's what some say.
If it's wanted you've got to be bold.
You can't hold back,
Be bold.
That's what some say.
If it's wanted you've got to be bold.
To get what is wished...
Be bold!
That's what some say.

You can't hold back!
Be bold.
If it's wanted you've got to be bold.
To get what is wished...
Be bold!
That's what some say.
The ones who have already sold their souls
That's what some say 'they' say.
