I'll Take the Fifth!


Birthdays today include several performers
Some of whom have had success, enormous
Including Billy Davis, Junior, of Fifth Dimension
And Chris Isaak, who's received much attention

For whilst he can play Country along with the best
He also does rock numbers, putting Elvis to the test
And he can also do blues, and even some jazz ...
A terrific performer, and so versatile ... he attracts

... Many fans who are dedicated to other genres ...
But who cross over to his more-encompassing promise
A feat very few artists desire, or seem able to do
But one that envelops so many, it might ring true!
