„p>If ever I have a son in life, I'll call him in one day
Sit him down upon my knee and here is what I'll say.You might lose your lover, people do sometime.
Oh, but it won't make sense for you to sit around cryin'.
Son, don't you know that when you fall in love,
Sometimes, you're gonna have the blues.
Well it may take years, but you're gonna shed some tears.
'Cause everybody's got to pay some dues, now, now.
Everybody's got to pay some dues.</p“
Everybody's Gotta Pay Some Dues, written by Smokey Robinson and Ronald White (1961)
