get what you want - In your struggle for self
world makes you queen for a day
to a mirror and look at yourself
what the gal has to say.
isn’t your husband or family or friend
judgement upon you must pass
whose verdict counts most in your life
one staring back in the glass.
strangers may think you a straight-shootin’ chum
you a person of place
gal in the glass says you’re only a bum
can’t look her straight in the face.
the gal to please – Never mind all the rest
she’s with you clear to the end
you’ve passed your most dangerous difficult test
gal in the glass is your friend.
fool the whole world down the pathway of years
pats on the back if you pass
final reward will be heartache and tears
you’ve cheated the gal in the glass.
