Gary Glitter - (If) Lost On Life Street



(If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise)

You don’t know how you feel
You don’t know if it’s for real
Just relax and take a chance
Its easy as another dance

Come with me, come with me

Only Heaven knows which way to go
This fantasy when loves gets lost on life street
Don’t criticize, its in the skies
But you gotta take a chance
When loves get lost on life street

(If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same)
Don’t expect this thing to last
Get on in before it passed
Shake your body to and fro
If you don’t get in
You’ll never know

Come with me come with me

Only Heaven knows which way to go
This fantasy when loves gets lost on life street
Don’t criticize, its in the skies
But you gotta take a chance
When loves get lost on life street

Lost on life (Hey!), lost on life (You got it!)
Lost on life (Hey!), lost on life (You got it!)

Come with me come with me

Only Heaven knows which way to go
This fantasy when loves gets lost on life street
Don’t criticize, its in the skies
But you gotta take a chance
When loves get lost on life street

(If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue
Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!)
