Tough Toiling

Lack of knowledge is darker than night.


Young man on a quest in life to be the best.
At whatever it is you set your heart to.
Toiling hard every single day without rest-

Like students study to prepare for their tests
Just so they will pass with points that are not few.
A man on a mighty quest to be the best.

Walking with the sun on her path, east to west
To go milk the cows just before they cry moo-
Every single day working hard without rest.

In the garden getting rid of all the pests.
Working till the bright day loses all its hue.
Young man on a quest in life to be the best-

Like a bird in the dawn rising from its nest
To catch first the worm on its way to the zoo.
Hard at work everyday toiling without rest.

I respect your commitment to the chase but
Be careful not in winter to get the flu
If you're a man on a quest to be the best
Toiling hard day in day out without much rest.
