to someone or other

now, i’ve been here and i’ve been there, and ridden my luck for a bet
i’ve used a knife to save my life, but never a murder yet
i’ve broken bread and raised a glass with devil and angel too
done my best and ignored the rest, and somehow always pulled through
i’ve raged against the dying of light, been foolish and shouted down fools
i’ve seen it all, lived large and felt small, but always by my own rules
yet there’s one thing above all else that’ll tell you just who i am
you can bill and coo, and write billets-doux, but still i won’t give a damn
