The "real" Ballad of the Relentless Optimist:

Once was a man called Twist
Who was a Relentless Optimist

(la la la)

This is his ballad
and not a salad

(la la la)

He had severe Optimism Bias
and that was just one
of his Eight problems

(la la la)

He walked with a swagger
due to the Overconfidence Effect

(la la la)

repeat 2X to fade

(sing to the tune of "Are we going to Scarborough Fair" or "Horse with No Name")
