Lyrics sample

Pride goes before a fall.

Act too big and you’ll end up small.

Boasting won’t impress at all,

Pride goes before a fall.

Once a boy lived in our town,

Thought himself the best around.

Picked apart all those he met,

And didn’t care who he upset.

When he made mistakes he lied,

And covered up to save his pride.

In the end he got found out,

Then he knew without a doubt…
