Lessons Learned

Lessons Learned

In life you live and learn, I have heard it said,
we awake and lie down again in our own made bed.
There's no such thing as a sure thing.
The trouble we find is the trouble we bring.
Free isn't always free,
put on your glasses and read the guaranty.
Dirt isn't cheap you gotta pay someone to move it,
believe me, I know, I have the receipt to prove it.
Nothing is ever really lost, you just don't know who found it.
You don't just marry the guy of your dreams,
you marry the intire family it seems.
If you want people to visit you more,
all you gotta do is mop your floor,
then all will come tracking through.
If it hasn't rained in days or weeks,
go out and wash your car till it squeaks,
then watch the rain drops fall on you.
No matter how much have, as you boast,
you will run out just when you need it the most.
No matter how good you think you are,
there's always someone better by far.
