My little girls taught me a lesson today,
About trying and trying again.
See, I tend to try once and then quickly give up,
But my girls told me failure’s just when
You’re still learning to do something,
So you need to try hard,
And just practice until it comes right.
You must never say can’t Mum,
They sternly implored,
When it looked like I’d put up a fight.
It’s not that you can’t,
You’re just still learning how,
So keep trying and don’t give up now,
Well if it works for my girls,
Then it might work for me,
So keep trying’s my mantra for now.
