A Man's A Man For All That

DGADGA
Is there for honest poverty one who hangs his head and all that?
DGADGA
The coward slave we pass him by we dare be poor for all that!
DGDG
For all that! And all that! Our toils obscured and all that,
DGADGA
Their rank is but the guinniea's stamp, the man's the gold for
all that!

DGADGA
But though on homely fare we dine wear hodden-grey and all that
DGADGA
Give fools their silks and knaves their wine; a man's a man for
all that.
DGDG
For all that and all that. their tinsel ,show and all that.
DGADGA
The honest man though e're so poor is king of men for all that.

DGADGA
See yond snob they call,'the lord' who struts and stares and all
that
DGADGA
Though hundreds worship at his word he's but a goof for all that
DGDG
For all that and all that; his ribbon,star and all that
DGADGA
The man of independant mind he looks and laughs at all that.

DGADGA
A Prince can make a belted knight, a marquis ,duke and all that
DGADGA
But the honest man's above their might,good faith he won't befall
that
DGDG
For all that and all that their dignities and all that,
DGADGA
His pith of sense and pride of worth are higher rank than all
that.

DGADGA
Then let us pray that come it may as come it will for all that
DGADGA
That sense and worth o'er all the earth shall be the goal for all
that
DGDG
For allthat and all that;its coming yet for all that,
DGADGA
That man to man the whole world o'er shall brothers be for all
that
