The Face In The Glass

When you get what you want in your struggle for self

And the world makes you king/queen for a day,

Just go to a mirror and look at yourself

And see what THAT face has to say.

For it isn't your father or mother or spouse

Whose judgment upon you must pass;

The person whose verdict counts most in your life

Is the one staring back from the glass.

Some people might think you are a straight-shootin' chum

And call you a great guy or gal,

But the face in the glass says you're only a bum

If you can't look it straight in the eye.

That's the one you must please, never mind all the rest,

For that's the one with you clear up to the end.

And you know you have passed your most dangerous test

If the face in the glass is your friend.

You may fool the whole world down the pathway of life

And get pats on your back as you pass,

But your final reward will be heartaches and tears

If you've cheated the face in the glass.
