How do you act when the pressure's on, When the chance for victory is almost gone. When Fortune's star has refused to shine, When the ball is on your five yard line?
How do you act when the going's rough, Does your spirit lag when the breaks are tough? Or, is there in you a flame that glows Brighter as fiercer the battle grows?
How hard, how long will you fight the foe? That's what the world would like to know!
Cowards can fight when they're out ahead. The uphill grind shows a thoroughbred! You wish for success? Then tell me son, How do you act when the pressure's on?
