    Be The Best Whatever You Are
    by Douglas Malloch

    If you can't be a pine on the top of the hill
    Be a scrub in the valley--but be
    The best little scrub by the side of the hill;
    Be a bush if you can't be a tree.

    If you can't be a bush be a bit of the grass,
    And some highway some happier make;
    If you can't be a muskie then just be a bass--
    But the liveliest bass in the lake!

    We can't all be captains, we've got to be crew,
    There's something for all of us here.
    There's big work to do and there's lesser to do,
    And the task we must do is the near.

    If you can't be a highway then just be a trail,
    If you can't be the sun be a star;
    It isn't by size that you win or you fail--
    Be the best of whatever you are!
