Lyrics
It’s a clear and sunny day but I can hardly see
If there is any civilization, any town beyond these trees
The maples and the oaks have gladly shown me the way
But the pines are all pissed off and have nothing to say
The woods are cool but there is nothing new
I don’t think here will be much fun any longer

Maybe yes, maybe not, I’ll still give it my best shot
I’ve got to find a way out of this terrible rut that I am in

Now, it’s a true but funny play and the actors take their bows
Their talent has come natural, when they need it, it’s here now
From the back of an audience a playwrite wonders why
Every time he has ideas, those ideas slowly die
He knows he can do much better than he has seen
But he can’t get his point accross

Maybe yes, maybe not, he still gives it his best shot
Someday, someone will recognize the talent he possesses within him

Now, it’s a blue and strange way that the pessimist works
He needs to feed his ego, he needs to be a jerk
To listen to the small guy, he’ll never understand
How two could do much more than just one ever can
‘Cause all alone he’ll never break the stone
That will drag him down in the end

Maybe yes, maybe not, he must be taught to give his best shot
He has to somehow realize that this idea may just work

Analysis: This may have been my own “best shot” ant writing a single, or popular song. Musically, it is very entertaining but it is sub-par vocally, which has given me an eternal love/hate opinion of this song.
