When you get what you want In the struggle for you
And the world makes you king for a day
Just go to the mirror and look at yourself
See what that person has to say

Now some people call you a straight shooting man
They think you're a wonderful guy
But the one in the glass says you're only a fool
If you won't look him straight in the eye

For it isn't your lover, your father or mother
Whose judgement upon you must pass
No, the verdict that counts the most in your life
Is the one staring back from the glass

Now the one you should please never mind all the rest
Who is with you clear to the end
And you've passed the most dangerous difficult test
If the one in the glass can be your friend

You can fool the whole world down the pathways of years
Get a pat on the back as you pass
But your final reward will be heartaches and tears
If you cheat on the one in the glass

For it isn't your lover, your father or mother
Whose judgement upon you must pass
No, the verdict that counts most in your life
Is the one staring back from the glass
