With SERIOUS apologies to Corned Beef Hashtag, Howard Ashman, et al….

Lift up your pen
Dust off your keyboard
Here, take my pencil
Erase false starts away
Show me your page, clean as the mornin’
I know things were bad, but now they’re okay
Possibly Henry is sittin’ beside you
You don’t need no agent, don’t have to pretend
Possibly Henry is here to provide you
Sweet understanding
Henry’s your friend

Nobody ever treated me kindly
Daddy left early
Mama was poor
I’d meet a book and I’d read it blindly
It’d have big plotholes
Me, I’d say “sure.”
Possibly Henry is standin’ beside me
He don’t give me orders
He don’t condescend
Possibly Henry is here to provide me
Sweet understanding
Henry’s my friend

Tell me this feelin’ll last till forever
Tell me the bad times are clean washed away

Please understand that it’s still strange and fright’nin’
For losers like I’ve been it’s so hard to say

Possibly Henry,
might’ve inspired me
Possibly Henry
He showed me I can
Learn how to be more
The writer inside me
With sweet understanding,
With sweet understanding,
With sweet understanding,
Henry’s my plant!

Possibly Henry,
Yes he inspired you
Possibly Henry
Yes, you can
Learn how to be more
The writer inside you
With sweet understanding,
With sweet understanding,
With sweet understanding,
Henry’s your plant…

    Hahahaha

    I am a little slow, but you are pretty funny.

Go ahead -- say something. Anything.
