Whenever you're called on to make up your mind,

And you're hampered by not having any,

The simplest way to solve the dilemma you'll find,

Is simply by flipping a penny.

No, not so that chance shall decide the affair,

As you're passively standing there moping.

But as soon as the penny is up in the air,

You'll suddenly know what you are hoping.
