The Man In The Glass

~ 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 passThe 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 bumIf you can't look him straight in the eye.
You may fool the whole world down the pathway of yearsAnd get pats on the back as you pass.But your final reward will be heartache and tearsIf you've cheated the man in the glass.
Dale Wimbrow, 1895-1954

Everybody wants 2 sell what's already been sold (Sold)


Everybody wants 2 tell what's already been toldWhat's the use of money if U ain't gonna break the mold?Even at the center of fire there is coldAll that glitters ain't gold
There are people livin' thereThey're unhappy each and every dayBut hell is not fashion so what U tryin' 2 say?
Everybody wants 2 tell what's already been toldWhat's the use of money if U ain't gonna break the mold?Even at the center of fire there is coldAll that glitters ain't gold, no no
If she led a good life, heaven takes her soulNow that's a theory and if U don't wanna knowStep a…
