The Quitter

The world needs no quitters.

You're sick of the game? Well now, that's a shame
You're young and you're brave and you're bright,
You've had a raw deal, I know, but don't squeal.

Buck up, do your darnedest and fight!
It's the plugging away that will win you
The hardest battle.

So don't be a piker, young lass,
Just draw on your grit; it's so easy to quit,
It's keeping your chin up that's hard.

It's easy to scowl and crawl,
But to fight bravely when hope's out of sight,
That's the best thing that counts.

And even if you come out of each grueling bout,
All broken, beaten and scarred,
Just have one more try; It's dead easy to die,
It's the keeping on living that's hard.
