If you feel the urge, don’t be afraid to go on a wild goose chase. What do you think wild geese are for, anyway? – Will Rogers
Tonight I heard the wild goose cry,
Wingin’ north in the lonely sky.
Tried to sleep, it weren’t no use,
‘Cause I am a brother to the old wild goose.
— 1950 hit record for Frankie Laine, music and lyrics by Terry Gilkyson
