STICK-TO-IT-IVITY

Música: Eliot Daniel
Letra: Larry Morey



Now where there's a will
there's a way to do it
But you'll never get there
if you don't stick to it

Now let me tell you about a fella
who had the right stuff...
and wouldn't give up
even when the goin' got rough

Christopher Columbus
Livin' in Spain
Showed capacity
for usin' his brain

Studied his geography
Had it down pat
Said I'm gonna prove
that the world ain't flat

Because she thought he was right
Queen Isabella one night
Gave him three small boats
One, two, three

Now uh, the boats were kinda leaky
Started to sail...
Came a hurricane
A furious gale

Waves were a-lashin'
Future looked black
Sailors started yellin'
- Chris, turn back

On that eventful day
what did Columbus say

Why I said
stick-to-it-ivity
If you got that stuff
Called stick-to-it-ivity
You're gonna do all right

Old man adversity
Gonna have his bluff called
Stick-to-it-ivity
Never lost a fight

Yes siree
Yes siree
You can clear the deck
for opportunity

By applyin'
stick-to-it-ivity
If ya got that stuff called
Stick-to-it-ivity
You're gonna do all right
We're gonna do all right

Now, don't think Columbus
was the only one
who did what folks said
couldn't be done

So when folks say
" 'Taint no use "...
Remember
Robert Bruce

Robert was the bravest king
Scotland has ever known
Came the enemy
to threaten his throne

Twice he went to battle
Twice he met defeat
Headed for the Highlands
in retreat

He thought he'd give up the fight
but it so happened one night
He saw a spider at work
Back and forth and back
Up and down and up

Spider kept a-swingin'
Swingin' on his thread
Tried to hook it
to a limb overhead

Spider kept a-missin'
every time he tried
- You're never going to make it
- Robert cried

On that eventful day
What did the spider say

Says I, Robert, me lad:
Stick-to-it-ivity
If ya got that stuff called
Stick-to-it-ivity
You're going to do all right

Old man adversity
Going to have his bluff called
Stick-to-it-ivity
Never lost a fight

Yes siree
Yes siree
You can clear the deck
for opportunity

By applyin'
stick-to-it-ivity
If you've got that stuff called
Stick-to-it-ivity
You're going to do all right
We're gonna do all right

Yes siree
Yes siree
You can clear the deck
for opportunity

By applyin'
stick-to-it-ivity
If you've got that stuff called
Stick-to-it-ivity
You're going to do all right
You're going to do all right
