It isn’t easy being left-handed
Everything seems the wrong way round
And back to front
And upside down

And yes it can get very confusing
When it’s the opposite to the right hand
That you are using

Opening tins is a big no-no
And non-smudged writing
Another no-go

There’s no left-handed pianos
No left-handed cars
But at least there’s left-handed scissors
And left-handed guitars

When you’re a lefty the world is unfair
Because all of the righties
Really don’t care

But it’s not all bad news
For lefties, it’s true
A lot of great people have been lefties too

Jimi Hendrix, Paul McCartney
Were left-handed stars
And many presidents too
Like Barack Obama

So take heart all you southpaws
You one out of every ten
Being left-handed isn’t all that bad
And there’s more left-handed women
Than left-handed men.
