CHIN UP!

You didn't really hurt yourself,
You didn't really fall!
Your body may tell you differently,
But you've no reason to cry at all -
Chin up you're a big boy now!

You shouldn't cry 'cos you lost your cat,
Life is tough and that is that!
You'll have to face much worse you know,
'Cos life get's tougher as you grow -
Chin up you're a big girl now!

You didn't really want that job,
Tied down for hours for just a few bob!
What would you want with self-respect, or responsibility,
Or a home in which to reflect -
Chin up you're a grown man now!

You didn't really love that man,
You can find another, you really can!
He's just another gone down life's drain,
How dare you say another won't be the same?
Chin up you're a grown woman now!

You don't need anyone's help through life,
To comfort you in times of strife...
To listen to your tears when you grieve,
You don't need Someone in whom to believe - 
Do you???
