Good Advice Is Free

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Looking up and down the street,
Before one goes across...
May save one's life without the strife.
And prevent paying a cost.

This advice is free.
This advice is free.
No matter what it is one thinks,
Agony is mean.
Nah, nah, nah-nah.

Before you pout and give me looks,
About something I say.
Open up your ears a moment,
Don't push me away.

This advice is free.
This advice is free.
No matter what you think of me...
I'm not your enemy.
Nah, nah, nah-nah.

Why do people get offended,
By a truth that's told.
But lies they seem to cling onto,
And then sell their own souls.
To leave them feeling...so low!

This advice is free.
No fee paid.
This advice is free.
No matter what expense is paid,
Good advice is free.
Nah, nah, nah-nah.
Nah, nah, nah-nah.

Why do people get offended,
By a truth that's told.
But lies they seem to cling onto,
And then sell their own souls.
To leave them feeling....so low!

This advice is free.
No fee paid.
This advice is free.
No matter what expense is paid,
Good advice is free.
Nah, nah, nah-nah.
Nah, nah, nah-nah.

Looking up and down the street,
Before one goes across...
May save one's life without the strife.
And prevent paying a cost.

Before you pout and give me looks,
About something I say.
Open up your ears a moment,
Don't push me away.

Good advice is free.
Good advice is free.
No matter what you think of me...
Good advice is free.

Good advice is free.
No fee paid.
Good advice is free.
No matter what expense is paid,
Think of preventing the agony.
Nah, nah, nah-nah.
Nah, nah, nah-nah.
Nah, nah, nah-nah, nah-nah NAH!

Comments about Good Advice Is Free

good or bad is relative...one cant know till the results are in front of you........many a times even the best of intentions fail....the advise may have been gd...but circumstances not...you may look right and left and left and right....yet an accident may happen........is the adviser to be blamed? ? No one should be blamed..the wise face the situation and deal ith it instead of playing a blame game or running away...
Whether good advice is freely given or not. I know this that bad advice in the long run cost too much. Especially when it is so easily given. Good Poem.
