VERSE 1:

I had a lover I once thought was fine

Till I discovered he was lying all the time

What did I learn

What did I gain

Can’t hate a fool

Can’t blame a shame

 

VERSE 2:

I had a friend, once thought was true

Till I learned that she talked trash about me too

What did I learn

What did I find

Can’t take back words

Can’t watch unwind

 

CHORUS:

Sometimes you gotta swallow

A little bit of pride

To get to where you’re going

You’ll meet people of all kinds

 

VERSE 3:

I had a boss, I thought was fair

Till I saw evidence, when my check was half a share

What did I learn

What did I get

Can’t break what’s broken

Can’t change regret

 

 CHORUS:

You may have to swallow

A little bit of pride

To get to where you’re going

Sometimes you have to climb

 

BRIDGE:

Who am I to cast a shadow

Over ones who’ve done me wrong

Who am I to say “I’ll never”

When life is short as it is long

 

VERSE 4:

I had a teacher thought cared for me

Till he took my money and gave no receipt

What did I learn

What did I take

Can’t throw a straight curve

Can’t catch a break

 

CHORUS:

I’ve learned I gotta swallow

A little bit of pride

To get to where I’m going

Sometimes running when I’m tied

 

CHORUS:

Yeah, sometimes you gotta swallow

A little bit of pride

To get to where you’re going

You’ll meet people of all kinds
