The Won’ts of the world are legion

Acknowledge them and they breed

They multiply without scruple

And divide by the power to mislead

You don’t have to listen to Won’t

You don’t have to pay Won’t heed

The Won’ts of the world are legion

Acknowledge them and they breed

And yet the Won’ts have a good side

You can decide you won’t concede

The Won’ts of the world are legion

Deny them and you are freed.
