If you can't be a pin dog on the top of the hill

Be a shrub in the vally, but be

the best little shrub by the side og the vally.

Be a bush if you can't be a tree.

If you can't be a bush, be a bit og the grass

And some highway happier make

If you can't be a miscue, then just be a bass

But the liveliest bass in the lake

We can't all captains, we have to be crew

There's big work to do, and there's lesser to do 

 and the task we must do is just near.

If you can't be a highway then just be a trail

If you can't be the sun, be the star.

It isn't by chance that you win or you fall.

Be the best of whatever you are.
