Life Is A Struggle

Learn and save and use your body

Know, then have and be somebody

Knowledge, thrift, endure a little

Don’t you play at second fiddle

 

Learn and save then you will grow

Into more than you might know

Study hard to pass your test

Work with fever til you rest

 

Learn and save and be somebody

Then you won’t have to owe nobody

 

See a problem work it out

You should never have a doubt

Think and do and reach your goal

You’ll never wind up in a hole

 

Learn and save and be somebody

Then you’ll have to owe nobody

Think and do and never rest

Not until you are the best

 

Don’t you moan and sit and cry

Get in don’t let it pass you by

Take your dollar with a hold

Then you’ll find your pot of gold

 

Buy a house, boat and more

Anything you can afford

Take a wife with love and laughter

You’ll be happy ever after

 

What you have and what you know

Will determine how far you go

You can do it if you try

Grow your wings before you fly

 

Life is a struggle

I tell you no lie

Its often got trouble

But you’re gonna survive

 

Suffering is a part of life

So is stress so is strife

So many things can happen

To break you down

are you patient are you strong?

are you right or are you wrong?

And is it good for everyone concerned?

 

It’s not always such a pain

With each knowledge that you gain

But you know you gotta have a good attitude

And you try to do your best

Then you get it off your chest

And then you try to move on to something new

 

Ife’s just not fun and games

It is freedom with restraints

And there’s no are no guarantees you’ll win

 

Healthy body healthy mind

To be able to unwind

And the good sense

that you’ll someday reach your goal
