The Girl In The Glass
When you get what you want in the struggle of life
And the world makes you queen for a day...
Go to the mirror and take a look at yourself
And see what that girl has to say.
It isn't your mother, father or husband
Whose judgment on you must pass.
The person whose verdict counts most in your life
Is the girl staring back from the glass.
You may be like Jack Horner and chisel a plum
And think you are a wonderful girl.
But the girl in the glass says you are a bum
If you can't look her straight in the eye.
You may fool the whole 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 girl in the glass.
