man staring into mirror

The Man In The Glass

When you get what you want in your struggle for self,
And the world makes you king for a day,
Just go to the mirror and look at yourself
And see what THAT man has to say.

For it isn’t your or or
Who judgement upon you must pass,
The fellow whose verdict counts most in your
Is the one staring back from the glass.

Some people may think you a straight-shootin’ chum,
And call you a wonderful guy,
But the man in the glass says you’re only a bum
If you can’t look him straight in the eye.

He’s the fellow to please, never mind all the rest,
For he’s with you clear up 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 whole world down the pathway of life,
And get pats on your back as you pass,
But your final will be and tears
If you’ve cheated the man in the glass.
