If you can’t be a pine on top of the hill, Be a scrub in the valley, but be the best little scrub|
By the side of the hill.
Be a bush, if you can’t be a tree,
We can’t all be captains; we then have to be the crew.
There’s something for all of us here.
There’s big work to do and there’s lesser to do.
And the task we must do is the near,
If you can’t be a highway, then just be a trail,
If you can’t be the sun, be a star,
It is not by the size that you win or fail
BE THE BEST OF WHATEVER YOU ARE.
