Representative Text

1 'Tis a lesson you should heed,
Try, try again;
If at first you don't succeed,
Try, try again:
Then your courage should appear,
For if you will persevere,
You will conquer, never fear,
Try, try again.

2 Once or twice though you should fall,
Try, try again;
If at last you would prevail,
Try, try again:
If we strive, 'tis no disgrace
Though we may not win the race;
What should you do in that case?
Try, try again.

3 If you find your task is hard,
Try, try again;
Time will bring you your reward,
Try, try again:
All that other folks can do,
Why, with patience, may not you?
Only keep this rule in view--
Try, try again.
