IRVING BERLIN lyrics - Take It In Your Stride

IRVING BERLIN
"Take It In Your Stride"

[Verse:]
Hey, there, you
You're on the top shelf
Your skies are blue
Pleased with yourself
Well, don't you get too cocky
The road is rocky
A-way up there
Life is sweet
Rosy and round
But keep your feet
Close to the ground
The weather won't be always fair

[Refrain:]
There'll be ups and there'll be downs
There'll be smiles and there'll be frowns
There'll be hopes and there'll be doubts, ins and outs
But whatever the fates decide
Take it in your stride

There'll be rain and there'll be sun
You'll have all and you'll have none
Hitch your wagon to a star, travel far
But you're in for a bumpy ride
Take it in your stride

There'll be friends both new and old
They'll blow hot and they'll blow cold
You'll be cheered and you'll be hissed, kicked and kissed
But whatever the fates decide
Take it in your stride

Don't get too big for your crown
What goes up may soon come down
Someone's waiting down below, set to go
Coming in on the rising tide
Take it in your stride
