"Fail on Failure"

Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

I've lost a forutune, my family fortune
Through risky ventures and my misfortune
I've been slighted, still I'm tryin'
Fail on, fail on failure

Distressed I falter, I'm no Gibralter
Suck up the sorrow
To fight tomorrow
Unrelenting, coffers empty
Fail on, fail on failure

Fought like a wild cat
Oh why have I failed
Fought like I'd lost my head
But low-er I fell

Often stumble, I won't crumble
I've been humbled, Life's a struggle
Still I'm sinking, but I'm swimming
Never ending, unrelenting
Can't break even, always beaten
Never veering, persevering
Fail on, fail on failure

I've worked and I've scraped,
The payoff I've chased
Eludes my efforts, still I endeavor
Uninspired, drained and tired
Fail on, fail on failure

Not succeeding, not conceding
Not defeated, nor retreating
And I wonder, why I blunder
Losses suffered, unrecovered
I'm not crying, keep a trying
But I'm sliding, am I dying

Fail on, fail on failure (x 7)
