Good advice, no joke.

Whenever you’re called on to make up your mind
And you’re hampered by not having any
The simplest way to solve the dilemma you’ll find
Is simply by flipping a penny

No, not so that chance shall decide the affair
As you’re passively standing there moping
But as soon as the penny is up in the air
You’ll suddenly know what you’re hoping
