The guy in the glass
When you get what you want in your struggle for pelf, And the world makes you king for a day Then go to the mirror and look at yourself And see what the guy has to say. For it isn´t your father, or mother, or wife Who judgement upon you must pass: The fellow whose verdict counts most in your life Is the guy staring back from the glass. He´s the fellow to please, never mind all the rest For he´s with you clear up to the end And you´ve passed your most difficult, dangerous test If the guy 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 can fool the whole world down the pathway of years And get pats on the back as you pass.
But your final reward will be heartaches and tears If you´ve cheated
the guy in the glass.
