Weekend Reminiscing

One of the best things to come out of Canada, next to alcohol of any kind and Rush, was a band called Triumph fronted by Rik Emmett. Now, dating myself, I was a pup in high school and L O V E D, not liked, lOOOved Triumph. Flipping through some stuff I found some pictures from that time period and then wondered what was on You Tube….were they really as good as I thought? They were and the reason is not just the music, but the lyrics. My friends, Fight the Good Fight, every minute, every day, fight the good fight every moment, make it worth the price we pay. Enjoy.  Here is the album version with lyrics.  Niiice.

The days grow shorter and the nights are getting long
Feels like we’re running out of time
Every day it seems much harder tellin’ right from wrong
You got to read between the lines
Don’t get discouraged, don’t be afraid, we can
Make it through another day
Make it worth the price we pay
The Good Book says it’s better to give than to receive
I do my best to do my part
Nothin’ in my pockets I got nothin’ up my sleeve
I keep my magic in my heart
Keep up your spirit, keep up your faith, baby
I am counting on you
You know what you’ve got to do
CHORUS:
Fight the good fight every moment
Every minute every day
Fight the good fight every moment
It’s your only way
All your life you’ve been waiting for your chance
Where you’ll fit into the plan
But you’re the master of your own destiny
So give and take the best that you can
You think a little more money will buy your soul some rest
You’d better think of something else instead
You’re so afraid of being honest with yourself
You’d better take a look inside your head
Nothing is easy, nothing good is free
But I can tell you where to start
Take a look inside your heart
There’s an answer in your heart
