          SUCCESS OR SANDWICH (lyrics)

MAKE YOURSELF SOMETHING
MAKE YOURSELF A SUCCESS
MAKE YOURSELF A SANDWICH

ONE IS VERY EASY
THE OTHER ONE IS NOT
BUT YOU MAY BE SURPRISED TO LEARN
THAT THE ONE THAT SEEMS EASY ISN'T ALWAYS
AND THE ONE THAT DOESN'T SEEM EASY
ISN'T ALWAYS, TOO
FOR EXAMPLE...

IT'S EASY TO MAKE YOURSELF A SUCCESS
IF YOU HAVE LOTS OF MONEY
AND INFLUENTIAL PARENTS
AND A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS
AND IT'S NOT SO EASY TO MAKE YOURSELF A SANDWICH
IF YOU DON'T HAVE MEAT AND BREAD AND CHEESE
AND A KNIFE

BUT AS A GENERAL RULE
WHAT YOU FIRST THOUGHT IS PROBABLY TRUE
FOR THE AVERAGE PERSON
IT'S EASIER TO MAKE YOURSELF A SANDWICH
THAN IT IS TO MAKE YOURSELF A SUCCESS

BUT...
OH, I GUESS THERE'S NO 'BUT'
IT'S EASIER TO MAKE YOURSELF A SANDWICH
THAN IT IS TO MAKE YOURSELF A SUCCESS
STILL...
OH NO, 'STILL' IS PRETTY MUCH THE SAME AS 'BUT'
HOWEVER...
NO, I REALLY THINK THAT'S THE WAY IT PROBABLY IS

NOW I'M JUST MARKING TIME
THIS SONG IS OVER
