Pluggin' away, pluggin' away
People who keep pluggin' away
They're the ones who get things done
'Cause they keep pluggin' away,
They keep pluggin' away!
Basketball's my fav'rite sport, but when
People told me, "You're too short!"
I refused to leave the court,
I kept pluggin' away!
(Watch me dribble now!)
Got new glasses for my eyes
Next day in school, some of the guys
Were teasin' me but, "Hey! Surprise!"
I kept pluggin' away.
(I could "see" they had some problems!)
Remember tortoise and the hare?
That rabbit really did not care,
The tortoise won it fair and square,
'Cause he kept pluggin' away!
(Puttin' one foot in front of the other!)
Chorus/ Instrumental Chorus
Now sometimes life is kinda tough, but our
Heads are made of brains, not fluff
So find a way to "do your stuff!"
An' you keep pluggin' away!
If you've got things you want to do
Don't let folks discourage you
Just hold your nose, say "Pooh to you!"
Then you keep pluggin' away!
