I was raised to be ambitious

Told to set out long time goals

The measure of success

Will be revealed as they unfold

So I set off on my life’s journey

Determined to achieve them all

And to avoid great disappointment 

My goals I set them low

And so as time has past

Sometimes it’s gone real slow

But as the end arrives

As the end it always will

I’ve achieved my low expectations

A life of success fulfilled
