If -The Crab lyrics

If -The Crab

Em
If you can keep your head when all about you
Are loosing theirs and blaming it on you
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting or being lied about don't deal in lies
Or being hated don't give way to hating
And yet don't look too good
Nor talk to wise

If you can dream and not make dreams your master
If you can think and not make thoughts your aim
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
But treat those two imposters just the same
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken
And stoop and build them up with worn out tools
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it all on one turn of pitch and toss

Em and kolokolo and ec
And loose and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss

Company
Pau amma pau amma pau amma pau amma
Pau amma pau amma pau amma pau amma

(lib)
Ec
If you can force your heart and nerve
And sinew to serve your turn long after they are gone

Ec and kolokolo
And so hold on when there is nothing in you

Em
Except the will which says to them hold on

All 3 and company
Hold on....

Company
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds worth of distance run
Yours is the earth and everything that's in it

Em
And which is more?...
You'll be a man...
My son

Company
Mmmm...
