Fight back!

You can’t let fools decide the way you live
You should not play for them but play for you
If you are sure you have a gift to give
Then find a place where that’s what you can do

My game is not your game but even so
A coach should be a coach above the rest
I try to teach my pupils all I know
It’s up to them to show me who’s the best

If you have what it takes then you must try
There’s many ways that you can skin a cat
Don’t let them act without a reason why
When you have won they’ll still be on the mat!

Don’t turn away if they have slammed the door
Just find a way to show you’re worth much more
