Don’t you Quit

20140130-184251.jpg
“Don’t ya stop dont ya stop” the Cars eagerly sang back in ’78

A train rolled down the tracks
With all its weight in motion

Bringing dry goods to everyone west of the Atlantic ocean

Rocky balboa never gave up,
If six quit, there would be no 7-up

JC Penney, a man of humble beginnings,

Orel Hershiser pitched 10 score-free innings,

Success is ours when we are willing to pay,

A farmer works hard for every ounce of golden hay

My song is, “Don’t you quit don’t you quit, ”

When you’re ready you will be lifted out of the burned-out pit

In Psalm 40 he waited patiently for the Lord,

it is not easy to break a triple-braided cord

The Father, Son, the Holy Spirit

I don’t know maybe you’re not ready to hear it

Bends in a river, do not stop the flow,

In the end, Texas got the alamo

Bananas? Sometimes they split.

Hey, it happens.

My song is: “Don’t you quit, don’t you quit. Don’t you quit.”

Now let’s make it a hit.
