Can help you with "The Unsung Hero"

Unsung Hero
(Eric Bogle)

The world did not pause in wonder on the day that you were born,
And when your life is over the world will not pause ot mourn.
And except for those who love you, unsung you'll live and die,
But you're honest and you're decent so you canhold your head up high.

Your life has been a common story, destined never to be told,
Not for you the shining glory of Nobel Prize or olympic gold.
You'll never mount the winners' rostrum to hear the masses chant your name,
Though you're honest and you're decent, that's not enough top bring you fame.

Chorus
But you've always been a hero to me becaue of what you are, not what you do,
What a kinder, better world this would be if only there were more like you.

But only winners are true heroes to this facile, fickle age,
The rest are faceless zeros to be shuffled off the stage.
While the winners hog the spotlight, the masses worship and applaud,
Though you're honest and you're decent, ah you'll never be a god.

Chorus

The world did not pause in wonder on the day that you were born,
And when your life is over the world will not pause ot mourn.
And except for those who love you, unsung you'll live and die,
But you're honest and you're decent so you canhold your head up high.

Yes you're honest and you're decent and you can hold your head up high.
