1. Say How it Is (mp3 file) (c) 2009 by Ed Seykota

 

Topic: Presentation of Evidence

on the Principle of Self-Fulfilling Prophesy

 

Lyrics:

 

Over and over until it's spontaneous.

(This line is an instruction to the band.)

 

I have a friend who's sickly; she spends the day in bed.

She feels the fever rising and going to her head.

She says that's how it always is; her dream is coming true.

Every time you say how it is, that's the way it's going to be for you.

 

I have a friend who's lucky; she wins at games of chance.

She thinks she's got the gamblers knack at business and romance.

She says that's how she likes it; her dream is coming true.

Every time you say how it is, that's the way it's going to be for you.

 

[instrumental break]

 

I have a friend who's sexy; she takes all she can get.

When she puts butter on her toast she gets the corners wet.

She's got it how she wants it; her dream it all came true.

Every time you say how it is, that's the way it's going to be for you.

 

Every time you say how it is, that's the way ... it's going to be for you.
