Save Note No Thanks
Caution: You are now annotating this song as

A KID, returning without protection from the pasture, was pursued
By a Wolf. Seeing he could not escape, he turned round, and
Said: "I know, friend Wolf, that I must be your prey, but before
I die I would ask of you one favor you will play me a tune to
Which I may dance." The Wolf complied, and while he was piping
And the Kid was dancing, some hounds hearing the sound ran up and
Began chasing the Wolf. Turning to the Kid, he said, "It is just
What I deserve; for I, who am only a butcher, should not have
Turned piper to please you."

In time of dire need, clever thinking is key
Or Outwit your enemy to save your skin.
