I don’t mind failing in this world!

Hannah sent me this greeting after reading my blog input yesterday about success.

You Rock Hannah!

I do not mind failing in a warped world either!

Why ever measure my success with someone else’s measuring scale?

I don’t mind failing in this world,
I’ll stay down here with the raggedy crew,
‘Cause getting up there means stepping on you, so
I don’t mind failing in this world.

 

Malvina Reynolds – Sings the truth (1966)

I don’t mind failing in this world,
I don’t mind failing in this world,
Don’t mind wearing the ragged britches
‘Cause those who succeed are the sons of bitches,
I don’t mind failing in this world.

I don’t mind failing in this world,
I don’t mind failing in this world,
I’ll stay down here with the raggedy crew,
‘Cause getting up there means stepping on you, so
I don’t mind failing in this world.

I don’t mind failing in this world,
I don’t mind failing in this world,
Somebody else’s measuring scale of
Win or lose doesn’t tell the tale, so
I don’t mind failing in this world.

I don’t mind failing in this world,
I don’t mind failing in this world,
Somebody else’s definition
Isn’t going to measure my soul’s condition,
I don’t mind failing in this world.

I don’t mind failing in this world,
I don’t mind failing in this world,
Never mind the custom suits,
The gentle hearts wear the dusty boots, so
I don’t mind failing in this world.

I don’t mind failing in this world,
I don’t mind failing in this world,
Some people ride in a car so fine
While others walk on a picket line, so
I don’t mind failing in this world.

I don’t mind failing in this world,
I don’t mind failing in this world,
Don’t mind wearing the ragged britches
‘Cause those who succeed are the sons of bitches,
I don’t mind failing in this world.
