Positive Change is the most beautiful garment you’ll ever find,
Positive Change of the Self-Improvement kind
I guarantee that no matter what race, creed or color you may be,
Nor what shape, size or dimensions you may be physically,
Just give it and try and you’ll surely see,
It will conform to the contours of your soul Perfectly.
