Fight 'Em Tooth And Nail



Upset and strife are a part of life It's so damn easy to fail To let life's problems drag you down Stead of fighting 'em tooth and nail Look on the bright side every day Troubles will appear less dour Ugliness that tries to rear its head Is replaced by pretty pink flowers Those who've always known this truth Are aware it's really not new Been around since the beginning of time A concept both tried and true Hope I don't sound like a “know-it-all” But after a whole bunch of years Certain truths are quite evident to me We really have nothing to fear The sun comes up, the sun goes down For eons it's been going on Take heart my cherished Souper friends You'll be watching from Heaven 'ere long © Jack Ellison 2013

    Dragon says you don't have to fail... He says he's good with tooth and nail... Says, He'll come up and paint the pretty pink flowers on your nails any time. And he has the whitest grin around... When ever he shows off his teeth... he says...they fall over backwards... cause of the shine, he thinks... Snicker... Silly Dragon!... But he does come in handy with pesky solicitors... Like you said... There's always a bright side... LOL
