Give It the Benefit of Doubt

Yuan Changming

Yes, Elvis has left the building
And you may be glad to see the back of
A hot potato
Jumping on the bandwagon
But once in a blue moon
You will hear it on the grapevine
Rather than straight from the horse’s mouth
Which is a far cry
From the best thing since sliced bread
Something you can see eye to eye
While cutting the mustard
By drawing all the best of both worlds
To make a long story short
Now if you feel a bit under the weather
Do not burn the midnight oil
Or sit on the fence
But just let the cat out of the bag
And then hit the sack
Even in this heat of the moment
