Men Like You Are Rare
By life you have been battered and you are on the floor
But you are not a quitter you rise and fight some more
You've fought the hardest battles it's uphill all the way
And like the great survivor you'll fight another day.
You've taken life's hardest punches big hits flush on your chin
And you've been on the canvas but you will not give in
For you believe in the saying can't keep a good man down
And you walk with your head high on the main street of town.
You never steal or borrow and you live good as you can
And you work hard for your livelihood and you are an honest man
You love your school going children and you are devoted to your wife
And though the cost of living rising you battle on through life.
You pay a high home mortgage you know financial pain
But you remain quite hopeful and you never complain
You've taken life's hardest punches but you don't say life's
And you just keep on keeping on and men like you are rare.
