The Man In The Glass

When you get what you want in your struggle for self And the world makes you king for a day,
Just go to the mirror and look at yourself And see what that man has to say
For it isn't your father or mother or wife
Whose judgment upon you must pass

The fellow whose verdict counts most in your life Is the one staring back from the glass
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 be like Jack Horner and chisel a plum
And think you're a wonderful guy. But the man in the glass says you're only a bum
If you can't look him straight in the eye. 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.

There are people livin' there They're unhappy each and every day But hell is not fashion so what U tryin' 2 say?
Everybody wants 2 tell what's already been told What's the use of money if U ain't gonna break the mold? Even at the center of fire there is cold All that glitters ain't gold, no no
If she led a good life, heaven takes her soul Now that's a theory and if U don't wanna know Step a…
