Get your hook in the water
If you want to catch fish
You must find a deep stream
It’s useless to wish.

Climb a high mountain
If you want to see far
There’s little sense moaning
About what you are.

Learn to see the sunshine
If you don’t like the rain,
Look for the bright side
You’ll not look in vain.

Learn to lead the crowd
If you won’t be bossed,
There’s a challenge ahead
Streams to be crossed.

Don’t sigh for the good things
To come fill your dish
Get your hook in the water
If you want to catch fish.
