    What if grass is greener on the other side,

    Because it's always raining there,

    Where the ones who never fail to give,

    Hardly have enough to spare,

    Where the people with the broadest smiles,

    Have pillows filled with tears,

    And the bravest ones you've ever known,

    Are crippled by their fears,

    It's filled with lonely people,

    but they're never seen alone,

    Where those that lack real shelter,

    Make you feel the most at home,

    Maybe their grass looks greener,

    Because they've painted on its hue,

    Just remember from the other side,

    Your grass looks greener too.

    When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,

    When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,

    When the funds are low but the debts are high,
    And you want to smile but you have to sigh,
    When care is pressing you down a bit…
    Rest if you must, but don’t you quit!

    Life is queer with its twists and turns,
    As every one of us sometimes learns,
    And many failures turn about
    When we might have won had we stuck it out.
    Don’t give up even though the pace seems slow…
    You may succeed with another blow.

    Often the struggler has given up
    When he might have captured the victor’s cup;
    And he learned too late when the night came down,
    How close he was to the golden crown.

    Success is failure turned inside out…
    And you can never tell how close you are
    It may be near when it seems so far.
    So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit
    It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.

    When you get what you want in your struggle for self

    And the world makes you king for a day,

    Just go the the mirror and look at yourself

    And see what that man has to say.


    For it isn't your father or mother of wife

    Whose judgment upon you must pass.

    The fellow whose verdict counts most in your life

    Is the one staring back from the glass.


    You may be like Jack Horner and chisel a plum

    And think your're a wonderful guy.

    But the man in the glass says your're only a bum

    If you can't look him straight in the eye.


    He's the fellow to please-never mind all the rest,

    For he's with you clear to the end.

    And you've passed your most dangerous, difficult test

    If the man in the glass is your friend.


    You may fool the whole world down the pathway of years

    And get pats on the back as you pass.

    But your final reward will be heartache and tears

    If you've cheated the man in the glass.
