The Lyrics

Soon, all of you will be singing this song including me!
Would I have a career in art, if I live on my pension?
Would I be able to pay my rent, if I live on my pension?
It is going to be tough you understand, Cause I'm not totally sure that I will have a pension.

Would I be able to feed my cats, if I live on my pension?
Could I go out to eat, if I live on my pension?
I choose not to have a man. So you can understand why I would need a pension.

The things in life demand cash you understand. But if you ask for a higher pay you will get a reprimand!

(Repeat 1st verse then end).

The pacing is really off in certain areas. I just don't understand how you can take a five syllable phrase like "Would you know my name" and replace it with an eight syllable phrase like "Would I have a career in art". How does that work? Anyhow, I'm a stickler for spot on pacing, even compared to most of the authors here. Keep trying man. It sucks that no one turned up to give you some constructive criticism besides me. You gotta work on that pacing for next time though.
