Whatever You Want

Thinking about Status Quo, it’s only regrettable that Francis Rossi (a Roman) chose to sing the lyrics not in the original Latin, but in English translation! I prefer them thus:

quicquid tu vis

quicquid amas

quicquid dicis

tuam pecuniam das

tuum dilectum eligis

quoquo tu eges

quoquo uteris

quicquid vincis

quicquid perdis

(With thanks to James W)

I had a stroke on July 26th, 2013. I was a screenwriter. Don’t do that anymore. But have found another way to write.
