When things to wrong  as they sometimes will,
 When the road youíre trudging seems all uphill,
 When the funds are low and the debts are high,
 And when you want to smile, but have to sigh,
 When care is pressing you down a bit,
 Rest if you must, but donít you quit.

 Life is queer with its twists and turns,
 As everyone of us sometimes learns,
 And many a failure turns about
 When he might have won had he stuck it out.
 Donít give up though the pace seems slow,
 You may succeed with another blow.

 Success is failure turned inside out,
 The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
 And you can never tell how close you are,
 It may be near when it seems so far,
 So stick to the fight with your hardest hit,
 Itís when things seem worse that you must not quit.
