"Now the Bitter, Now the Sweet" as written by Cecil Franklin and William Robinson Jr.....
Now the bitter, now the sweet
Halfway down life's busy street
Neither quickening the grueling pace
Neither leading in the race
(Hey, yeah)
In the race
(Say it again)
In the race
(In the race)
In the race
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

Ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah
B-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-ba
B-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-ba

Now the bitter, now the sweet
Halfway down life's bust street
Hand in hand they always go
That is something all should know
(Ooh, yeah)
All should know
(Whoo, hoo, hoo)
All should know

Never pleasure without pain
Never lost apart from gain
Never joy (Oh no)
Apart from strife
(Don't you know that)
Each of these has its place in life, yeah
Place in life
(Say it again, now)
Place in life
Place in life

Bitter
Sweet
Bitter
(Sweet, sweet)
Sweet

As the storms of life must rage
Words be only turn the page
Now the day (Now the day-ay-ay)
And now the night
Now the wrong and now the right
The day and night, the wrong and right

Ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah
B-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-ba
B-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-ba

Now the bitter, now the sweet
Halfway down life's busy street
Equal standing in the light of man
Band as do as best you can

Amen
(Say amen)
A-a-amen
(Amen)
Amen
(Amen!)
A-a-amen
(Amen)
Amen
(Whoa, oh)
A-a-amen

Ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah
B-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-ba
B-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-ba

Now the bitter, now the sweet
Now the sweet (Now the sweet)
Now the sweet

Bitter
Sweet
Bitter
(Sweet, sweet)
Sweet
Bitter
(Bitter, sweet)
Sweet
Sweet
(Now the sweet)
Sweet
