SURE HE WILL, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: He's cocksure in all his opinions
Last Line: He'll get over it too!
Subject(s): Youth


He's cocksure in all his opinions
And no one can tell him a thing;
Of all the world's goodly dominions
He thinks he's undoubtedly king.
He gives the cold shoulder to folks who are older
(Exactly as we used to do),
But I got over it, you got over it,
He'll get over it too.

He's certain the world is his oyster
Which he can crack open alone,
And down life's broad highway he'll roister
And sneer at its perils unknown.
He'll go his way scorning all manner of warning
(We did it, it's nothing so new).
But I got over it, you got over it,
He'll get over it too!

I envy him, taking his chances
With blithe and unquestioning cheer,
Undaunted by destiny's glances,
Cocksure, with no shadow of fear;
There's no need to wonder at each youthful blunder
(Ah, once we were young, through and through),
But I got over it, you got over it,
(Sad it is that we must get over it)
He'll get over it too!
