When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're crossing seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you try to smile but you have to sigh.
When cares are pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, But don't you quit.
Don't give up, though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with your next blow.
Success is failure turned inside out,
It's the difference between faith and doubt.
You may be close, though it seems so far.
It's hard to tell how close you really are.
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit,
It's when things seem their worst,
That you must not quit.
