“Dumb Things” by Paul Kelly and the Coloured Girls

I melted wax to fix my wings
I’ve done all the dumb things
I threw my hat into the ring
I’ve done all the dumb things
I thought that I just had to sing


Dear Mr Kelly,

Seeing as you’ve been able to make a living at it for more than twenty years now, and that you have brought joy to the hearts of many, many people around the world, it’s just barely possible that throwing your hat into the ring, and choosing to sing for a living was not, in fact, a very dumb thing at all.
