ALLEN TOUSSAINT lyrics - What Is Success

ALLEN TOUSSAINT
"What Is Success"
(Allen Toussaint)

How does one decide
That the methods he's using, they just won't jive
Truly believing and trying over and over again
Living in hopes that someday you'll be in with the winners

When should one change his mind
And jump the fence, oh lord, for the dollar sign
It's a sad thing, it's a bad thing, but so necessary
That this cold world holds your values to become monetary

Now what, what, what, what is success
Is it doing your thing, or do you join the rest
Ah If you truly believe should you try over and over again
And live in hopes that someday you'll be in with the winners

How does one decide
That the methods he's using, they just won't jive
Truly believing and trying over and over again
Living in hopes that someday you'll be in with the winners

How does one decide
That the tactics he's using, they just won't jive
Truly believing and trying over and over again
Living in hopes that someday you'll be in with the winners
