I’ve paid my dues, time after time.
I’ve done my sentence, but committed no crime.
And bad mistakes, I’ve made a few.
I’ve had my share of sand kicked in my face,
But I’ve come through…
I don’t recall that the late Freddie Mercury was ever much celebrated for his lyrics, but this one hit the spot. Snigger if you will at my enshrining of these happy little pop lyrics, but they work for me! Thanks Freddie!
