Song Lyric of the Day (Cole Porter, on Why You Should ‘Be a Clown’)

“If you become a doctor, folks'll face you with dread,
If you become a dentist, they'll be glad when you're dead,
You'll get a bigger hand if you can stand on your head.”—American lyricist and composer Cole Porter (1891-1964), “Be a Clown,” performed by Gene Kelly and Judy Garland in the movie musical The Pirate (1948)
