Trim the fringe around your elbow,
It hangs around you, though you are blind to it.
Sometimes, you can't help the way things happen, like the fringe.
When you feel this, you will know.
Now, I cannot tell you how it is true, but it is so.
I have nothing I can do for you,
But help you along the way.
I'll carry you when you are hurt,
I'll give you medicine when you're sick.
I'm here, like the fringe.
