The Man who Wins


The man who wins is an average man
Not built on any peculiar plan
Not blessed with any peculiar luck
Just steady and Ernest and full of pluck

When asked a question he does not guess
He knows and answers No or Yes
When set a task that the rest can’t do
He buckles down till he pulls through

Three things he’s learnt that the man who tries
Finds flavour in the employers eyes
That it pays to know more than one thing well
That it doesn’t pay all he knows to tell

So he works and waits till one fine day
There’s a better job with bigger pay
And the men who shirked whenever they could
Are bossed by the man whose work did good

For the man who wins is the man who works
Who neither labour nor trouble shirks
Who uses his hands his head his eyes
For the man who wins is the man who tries
