music by DH

I wrote this song after the school shooting in Texas. As we questioned why this keeps repeating, I wondered what is it that could be said to a child to enable him to make great choices. Persistence is the words, I came up with.
Oh child, you got a whole lot of living to do.
Greater things in life are ahead of you.
When the voice of confusion tries to steer you wrong.
Know doing right not wrong gets you recognition.

cho
You can know the joy of winning even after you lose.
Tho’ there’s pain in failing as you fall and you bruise.
There’s one thing every winner should know.
Winning takes persistence.

Child, you got to have plans and you got to have aim.
Even if you don’t earn money or fame.
Do whatever you do, as if you’re getting paid.
Cause doing your very best is its own reward.

cho
You can know the joy of winning even after you lose.
Tho’ there’s pain in failing as you fall and you bruise.
There’s one thing every winner should know.
Winning takes persistence.

Don’t let anybody think, you can’t take the heat.
Don’t allow them to take away your sweet.
Keep your glow going, because you got what it takes.
Don’t ever give up or think that it’s too late.

Cho.
You can know the joy of winning even after you lose.
Tho’ there’s pain in failing as you fall and you bruise.
There’s one thing every winner should know.
Winning comes through persistence.
