Anyone Can Whistle

This is one of my favourite songs … the version that I’m familiar with is sung by Tom Wopat. It captures my sentiment with some of the things that are difficult for me to do, despite the relative ease experienced by others …

Anyone Can Whistle
(Stephen Sondheim)

Anyone can whistle, that’s what they say – easy.
Anyone can whistle, any old day – easy.
It’s all so simple.
Relax, let go, let fly.
So someone tell me, why can’t I?

I can dance a tango, I can read Greek – easy.
I can slay a dragon, any old week – easy.
What’s hard is simple.
What’s natural comes hard.

Maybe you could show me how to let go,
Lower my guard,
Learn to be free.
Maybe if you whistle,
Whistle for me …

I've finally relented to the lures of blogging - and for those who care, well, I'm a self-confessed geek who's a wanderer at heart, who thinks and analyses too much, and who's trying hard to hold on to his 7-year old inner persona.
