When you get what you want in your struggle for self, and the world makes you king for a day, Just go to a mirror and look at yourself, and see what THAT 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 most in your life is the one staring back from the glass.
Some people might think you're 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 the most difficult, dangerous test, if the guy in the glass is your friend.
You may fool the whole world
down the pathway of years,
and get pats on the back as you pass,
But your final reward will be heartaches and tears
if you've cheated the man in the glass.
