Word to the Wise Lyrics

2016 stage musical adaptation of a folk opera by Anaïs Mitchell
HADESTOWN the Musical - Word to the Wise Lyrics


FATES
Gotta think quick
Gotta save face
Caught between a rock and a hard place
Whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do
Whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do now?

If you tell him no,
Oh, you’re a heartless man
And you’re gonna have a martyr on your hands
If you let him go,
Oh, you’re a spineless king
And you’re never gonna get them in line again

Damned if you don’t
Damned if you do
Whole damn nation’s watching you
Whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do,
Whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do now?

Here’s a little tip
Word to the wise
Here’s a little snippet of advice:
Men are fools
Men are frail
Give them the rope and they’ll hang themselves
