I hesitate to make a list Of all the countless deals I’ve missed;

Bonanzas that were in my grip – I watched them through my fingers slip;

The windfalls which I Should have bought were lost because I over-thought;

I thought of this, I thought of that, I could have sworn I smelled a rat, And while I thought things over twice, Another grabbed them at the price,

It seemed I always hesitate,Then make my mind up much too late,

A very cautious man am I And that is why I never buy.
