“THE MAN IN THE GLASS”
When you get what you want in your struggle for self
And the world makes you king for the day,
Just go to the mirror and look at yourself
And see what the man has to say.
For it isn’t your father or mother or wife
Whose judgment upon you must pass,
The fellow whose verdict counts the most in your life
Is the one staring back from the glass.
You may be like Jack Horner and chisel a plum
And think you’re a wonderful guy,
But the man in the glass says “You’re a bum
If you can’t look me straight in the eye.”
He’s the fellow to please... never mind all the rest
For he’s with you clear to the end.
And you’ve passed your most dangerous difficult test
If the man in the glass is your friend.
You may fool the world down the pathway of years
And get pats on your back as you pass,
But your final reward will be heartache and tears,
If you’ve cheated, “THE MAN IN THE GLASS”
