You're Doing Better Than You Think

Your friends are all ahead of you
Looking back with a grin
Earning much more money
Winning much more win
But that’s not how it is at all
It’s really not that way.
You are doing better than you think
And they’re doing worse than they say.

Their books have just been published
Their songs are number one
Their kids have got a law degree
Their granddad’s hit the ton.
Their whole damn world is flying high
But keep on making hay
Cos you are doing better than you think
And they’re doing worse than they say.

They’ll make you feel you’re on the bottom
Just barely on your feet
But don’t give them no credence
They’re all lying through their teeth

Do the best you can
It’s all that you can do
And one day you will wake to find
The sun’s come shining through
Until then, keep your chin up
keep fighting all the way.
You are doing better than you think
And they’re doing worse than they say.
