No Matter How Hopeless

The appeal of Don Quixote eludes me. It’s the story of a mentally ill man and his mentally ill enabler who travel the countryside upsetting people and getting the hell beat out of them. I’m not charmed.

But without the book we wouldn’t have the musical, and without the musical we wouldn’t have one of the world’s great songs, so there’s that.

Full lyrics HERE.
