Featured on Radio - The Voice

Appears on Words and Music episode 005

There’s no way you can sing and dance

Said Voice with sneering, snarling stance.

Your playing’s crap. Your singing’s worse.

Makes fingers twitch, makes eardrums burst.

- Creative stuff’s just not your thing.

- The Voice said Girl just pack it in.

Your needles break, your knitting sags.

Failed projects lounge in patchwork bags.

Your hemming rips, your beading flops

Applique flakes, and stitches drop.

- Creative stuff’s just not your thing.

- The Voice said Girl just pack it in.

And writing? Girl, for goodness sake,

You’re barely literate. You’re fake!

You self-indulge. You scrawl your name

With fallow dreams of shallow fame.

- Creative stuff’s just not your thing.

- The Voice said Girl just pack it in.

I’ve read your awful stuff, Voice said

You’re destined never to be read.

Remove the stories from your head.

The only decent scribes are dead,

- Creative stuff’s just not your thing.

- The Voice said Girl just pack it in.

What makes you think you’ll ever scrawl

A story strong, a tale not tall?

And why would any person buy

Your ‘Camping Tales’ or ‘Baby’s Cry’?

- Creative stuff’s just not your thing.

- The Voice said Girl, just pack it in.

So, when I’m low, the Voice is loud.

And when I’m strong, the Voice is cowed.

I’ll do it even if it’s bad

Cos if I don’t I’ll just go mad.

Yes. When I’m low, the Voice is Loud.

But when I’m strong, the Voice is cowed.

- Creative stuff’s just not your thing.

- The Voice said Girl, just pack it in.
