Oh, can't you see, sir, that I've tried so hard?
'Refined my gift to earn your good regard?

I know how you rate me
Don't underestimate me
I'll get there,
my brother,
one foot before the other

Tough cookies strut their stuff
'cause tough cookies don't give up
I'm a tough cookie
I'm a tough cookie
and I don't give up

When we're pursuing our own shining star,
we're faced with redefining who we are
If old selves are dying
on Lazarus feet I'm rising
I'm beaten and slivered,
but I will be delivered

Tough cookies don't give in
'Cause tough cookies have tough skin
I'm a tough cookie
I'm a tough cookie
and I know that we

fight just a little bit
We die just a little bit
We cry as our dreams elude us
If we fight through the night
we can rise, rise to day!

Tough cookies don't give up
Tough cookies are tough stuff
I'm a tough cookie
I'm a tough cookie
And I don't give up!
And I don't give up!


from The Hound (Side A of "The Hound & The Hare), track released September 25, 2012
