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
