Ambition was high, thoughts were plain
needs were high, resources low
I need to get on the gravy train
 
I climbed the hills, come sun or rain
cut through rocks in search of dough
Ambition was high, thoughts were plain
 
those up there - looked at me with disdain
uncaring of blocks, I pulled on the show
I need to get on the gravy train
 
nothing ever was as raw as this pain
It hurt, but I did not let it grow
Ambition was high, thoughts were plain
 
Overall pace - I did maintain
I pushed myself, when I felt low
I need to get on the gravy train
 
There was bloodshed, but no stain
It cut me deep, but did not show
Ambition was high, thoughts were plain
I need to get on the gravy train
