Barry Manilow

"God Bless The Other 99"

Barry talking:
Well I may have imagined singing back then but you know when I actually got into the music business, it wasn't as a singer at all: it was as an accompanist
I started out playing for auditions, and from where I sat I learned alot because only one out of a hundred ever got the job they were auditioning for. Really, one out of a hundred
But that didn't stop the rest..no sir

Barry singing:
I learned more from failure than I learned from success
I learned from no thank you, so much more than from yes
I learned to be willing to lead with my chin
And if I were willing to lose, I could win

I learned from the losers who got right back in line
The dimmer their future, than the brighter they'd shine
Three cheers for the one, the one in a hundred
But God bless the other 99

Barry talking:
Those courageous people changed my life
They taught me that you can give in, you can give out, but you don't give up

Barry singing:
I learned more from failure than I learned from success
I learned from no thank you, so much more than from yes
I learned to be willing to lead with my chin
And if I were willing to lose, I could win
