'Tis a lesson you should heed, 
If at first you don't succeed, 
Try, try again;  
 
Then your courage should appear, 
For if you will persevere, 
You will conquer, never fear 
Try, try again; 
 
Once or twice, though you should fail, 
If you would at last prevail, 
Try, try again;  
 
If we strive, 'tis no disgrace 
Though we do not win the race; 
What should you do in the case? 
Try, try again 
 
If you find your task is hard, 
Time will bring you your reward, 
Try, try again  
 
All that other folks can do, 
Why, with patience, should not you? 
Only keep this rule in view: 
Try, try again.
