Take It Fightin'

Henry Lawson, 1907

      When you've got no chance at all,
      Take it fightin'.
      When you're driven to the wall,
      Take it fightin'.

      There are things that we delight in
      For the wrongin' or the rightin',
      But the fool you cannot frighten
      (That you cannot bluff nor frighten)
      He is King of all.
      (Take it fightin'.)

      When you're down an' out an' utter,
      Take it fightin';
      When they've put you in the gutter,
      Take it fightin'.

      There are things that we delight in
      For the wrongin' or the rightin',
      But the fool you cannot frighten
      (That you cannot bluff nor frighten)
      He is King of all.
      (Take it fightin'.)
