When The Pressure's On

How do you act when the pressure's on?
When the chance for victory is almost gone,
When fortune's star has refused to shine,
When you need a takedown with very little time?

How do you act when the going's rough?
Does your spirit lag when the breaks are tough,
or is there in you a flame that grows
brighter as fiercer the battle grows?

How hard, how long will you fight the foe?
That's what the world would like to know!
Cowards can fight when they're out ahead.
The uphill grind knows a thoroughbred!

You wish for success? Then tell me, son --
How do you act when the pressure's on?
