Figure it out for yourself my lad. You've got all that the great have had.
Two arms, two legs, two hands, two eyes, and a brain to use if you'd be wise.
With this equipment they all began, so start for the top and say "I Can."
Look them over the wise and the great. They take their food from a common
plate. With similar knives and forks they
use, with similar laces they tie their shoes. The world consider them brave
and smart, but you know - you've got all
they had, when they made their start.
You can triumph and come to skill you can be great if you only will. You're
well equipped for the fight you choose,
you have arms and legs and brains to use. And people who have risen, great
deeds to do started their lives with no
more than you.
You are the handicap you must face. You are the one who must choose your
place. You must say where you want to
go. How much you'll study the truth to know. God has equipped you for life,
but he lets you decide what you want to be.
The courage must come from the soul within, you must furnish the will to
win. So figure it out for yourself my lad, you
were born with all the great have had. With your equipment they all began,
so start for the top and say "I Can."
