It’s a mean world my dear!
Nobody will appreciate you. They’re jealous, they’re insecure.
They’ll drag you down when you’re ahead of them. They’ve got mouths only to discourage you, dishearten you.
But don’t you worry, because you know your merits, your worth.
You’ve got to shine and not drown.
You’ve to smile, not cry.
You’ve to win and not loose.
Don’t you dare shut yourself down. You’re a precious jem, they don’t know your price yet.
