Whatchu gonna do when
  the trim is gone


Whatchu gonna do when
  the right turns wrong



Whatchu gonna do when
  the whistle blows


Whatchu gonna do when
  your feet say no


Whatchu gonna do when
  the man comes knockin


Whatchu gonna do when
  that devil’s laughin



Whatchu gonna do when
  your train don’t run


Whatchu gonna do when
  the words won’t come


(Villanova Pennsylvania: June, 2017)
