When Fate Comes Calling - Poem by Colin Coplin

Thinking of her, while being with you
Mixed emotions, can cut you in two
What you gonna do, when fate comes callings
What you gonna do when fate comes calling, on you

Multi millionaires doing it tough
Losing at monopoly, just ain't never enough
Take it to the real world, then break it half
Don't roll the dice and land on me, I've had enough

What you gonna do, when fate comes callings
What you gonna do when fate comes calling, on you

Don't take it to heart, don't take it for granted
Get out of jail free, is the eleventh commandment
Never a time, when it hasn't been needed
Take it like a man, use it while you can

What you gonna do, when fate comes callings
What you gonna do when fate comes calling, on you

What you gonna do, when fate comes calling
The sound of the telephone, what should I do?
Jump out the window,


Ants in the back yard, coming out to play
No rain today
Going round in circles
Carry above their weight
