From the album Pluggin' Away Buy Now

- the secret to getting things done!

PLUGGIN’ AWAY

Chorus:  Pluggin’ away, pluggin’ away

People who keep pluggin’ away

They’re the ones who get things done 

Cause they keep pluggin’ away,

They keep pluggin’ away!  

 

Basketball’s my fav’rite sport, but when 

People told me, “You’re too short!” 

I refused to leave the court,  

I kept pluggin’ away!   

(Watch me dribble now!) 

Chorus

 

Got new glasses for my eyes

Next day in school, some of the guys

Were teasin’ me but, “Hey! Surprise!”

I kept pluggin’ away.

(I could “see” they had some problems!)

Chorus

 

Remember tortoise and the hare?

That rabbit really did not care,

The tortoise won it fair and square,

Cause he kept pluggin’ away! 

(Puttin’ one foot in front of the other!)

Chorus

Instrumental Chorus

 

Now sometimes life is kinda tough, but our

Heads are made of brains, not fluff

So find a way to “do your stuff!”

An’ you keep pluggin’ away!

 

If you’ve got things you want to do

Don’t let folks discourage you

Just hold your nose, say “Pooh to you!”

Then you keep pluggin’ away!

Chorus
