He stretches his legs Eyes glowing like matches He is too proud - he never begs
No mountain is too big for him, no slope too steep He is alert, wide awake Some say he'll never sleep
Courage is a lion Doing what you want, hail, rain or shine Standing up to anything "It's mine, it's mine."
Courage is going out in a storm Hearing the growl of the approaching thunder Feeling the warning wind, humid and warm
Feeling the rain beat on your neck, cold and wet Standing up, though you know you might lose Making a bet
Hearing the wind howl, Uncertainly, blowing leaves this way and that Going out in a storm, knowing that things might go foul
Courage is a lion Courage is taking your chances Seizing every opportunity, taking a gamble With no backward glances
Courage is a lion
