As kids we're taught
That you can't always
Get what you want.
But that doesn't mean
That you shouldn't work hard
To achieve the goals you've set out.
Yes, there will be times of failure;
There will be times of despair;
There will be times of sadness
But eventually you will get there!
Now as teenagers we realise
That what our parents said was true -
You can't always get what you want,
But that still doesn't stop us from trying,
Because we just might find
That we can get what we need.
And then as adults we find out
That although we believed their words,
They are not always right.
Because if you fight enough;
Work hard enough;
You can actually achieve
Every goal you've ever set out...
