BEAR IT LIKE A MAN
(Written and sung by Harry Clifton). [1867?]
    [Music originally by Charles Coote, jun.]
    Arranged by M. Hobson

1. I gaily sing from day to day,
    A careless man am I.
As long as I can pay my way,
    Misfortune I defy.
And then with spirits ever gay,
    I do the best I can,
When trouble comes upon my way,
    To bear it like a man.

        CHORUS.
    I gaily sing from day to day, And do the best I can,
    When trouble comes upon my way, To bear it like a man.

2. We're told that since the world began
    (That's many years ago),
If 'money did not make the man,'
    It 'made the mare to go :'
Of comforts, I have quite enough,
    Although my wealth is small;
I know that I am better off,
    Than folks with none at all.

3. If fortune on a friend doth shine,
    I love him none the less;
I never grieve, I never pine,
    For wealth I don't possess :
A happy home, a loving wife,
    Of worldly goods a store;
Contented with my lot in life,
    A king can be no more.

4. And one thing too, I hold it good,
    Wherever I may be,
'To do to others as I would
    That they should do to me :'
This world would ne'er be dark and drear
    If each would try the plan,
Of giving when they had to spare,
    To help their fellow man.
