It is not necessary to be the smartest
To be one of the coolest
And it is not necessary to be the best looking
To win the most applauding
All you need is a good heart
And an educated opinion to start
And you can achieve the greatest fame
And have everyone remember your name
And you can be a terrible poet
Or the most horrible at art
As long as you have your heart
There is nothing stopping you
From being famous at whatever you started out to do
But you must remember not to stop before finishing
That which you set out to do at the beginning.
