Winners And Losers Are Two Of A Kind
______________Verse/Chorus

Verse 1:
Did he try to hit me with that pitch
Why’s the batter hogging home plate
Oh, throw a curve, miss me by an inch
Fix on the win, don’t get irate
I’ll take a walk, let him have his cow
If this were a war, he’d be dead by now

Pre-Chorus:
Try to recall what life’s all about, ‘cause

Chorus:
Winners and losers are two of a kind
Since competition is a state of mind
Relish the win, dread the loss
Keep in mind the cumulative cost
Of fighting yourself, wasting your time
A vicious circle which you may be lost
As winners and losers are two of a kind

Verse 2:
Pass interference should be the call
Shoulda knock him out of the game
He hit me before I touched the ball
Fix on the win, must be my aim
We’ll get ten yards and a first down
If this were a war, he’d not be around

Pre-Chorus:
Try to recall what life’s all about, ‘cause

Chorus:
Winners and losers are two of a kind
Since competition is a state of mind
Relish the win, dread the loss
Keep in mind the cumulative cost
Of fighting yourself, wasting your time
A vicious circle which you may be lost
As winners and losers are two of a kind

Bridge:
We’re easily caught in the thrill of the game
When we win, we get trapped in the fame
If we lose, we look for someone to blame
Though losing and winning are just heads and tails
We gain when we lose, turn wins into fails
But the purpose of life should be what prevails, ‘cause

Chorus:
Winners and losers are two of a kind
Since competition is a state of mind
Relish the win, dread the loss
Keep in mind the cumulative cost
Of fighting yourself, wasting your time
A vicious circle which you may be lost
As winners and losers are two of a kind

Coda:
So just remember both sides are the same
Challenge yourself for the fun of the game
Don’t get caught in the ruse of the bind
Winners and losers are two of a kind

There are dozens of "hat act" neo-traditional/contemporary Country singers from th early-to-mid-90s who could do this song! Catchy and relatable, good job! 👍

Thanks, JD... It really nice to get someone to finally comment on this. I had fun writing it. One of my co-pilot friends and I used to joke about this very subject all the time in the early days of my Air Force career.

I’m so glad jd pulled this one back. Glad to see a different side of you

A quality song about what matters in life and how country (real) people react

Entertaining and well structured

Hey, MAS... Have you seen my hard rock/metal side? That’s what got me into writing lyrics. Pleased you’re pleased with it.

Charles
