The Guy in the Glassby Dale Wimbrow, (c) 1934<br />When you get what you want in your struggle for pelf,<br />And the world makes you King for a day,<br />Then go to the mirror and look at yourself,<br />And see what that guy has to say.<br /> <br />For it isn't your Father, or Mother, or Wife,<br />Who judgement upon you must pass.<br />The feller whose verdict counts most in your life<br />Is the guy staring back from the glass.<br /> <br />
