„Well let them take you for a clown
And they're bound to bring you down.
You got to make it through the world if you can.
Think they're doing you wrong
But you got here on your own.
You got to make it through the world if you can.“
— Van Morrison Northern Irish singer-songwriter and musician 1945
You Gotta Make It Through the World
Song lyrics, A Period of Transition (1977)
