Bruce Hornsby – This Too Shall Pass lyrics

I found only one set of lyrics for this song on the web and I found them extremely unsatisfactory. They were badly spelled and many sections were entirely, and obviously off of the real lyrics. So I set out to do better. It's not perfect by any means but I think it's getting closer. The only thing I'm really missing is the name in line 12 if someone can figure that out.

Gotta get somethin' done today
Give a accomplishment a shot
Might not have a full palet to use
But I'm gonna paint with the colors I've got

Then your hopes and ideals you embrace
Then there's what's staring you in the face
Sorrowful times are here but they won't last
'Cause, this too shall pass

Hhmmm hmmmm
This to shall pass

Feelin like a lazy tub of lard
?????? Gave me his business card
Think I'll take a personality test
Document my fineness this far

Then your hopes and ideals you embrace
Then there's what's staring you in the face
First place man will one day roll in last
'Cause this too shall pass

Na na na na naaaa na na
Na na na na na na naaaaaa

And this too shall pass

Better get on out to the startin' line
Comin' soon they're gonna fix it in time
I just want to get what's mine
Not a function, gonna just, gonna adjust the lights

And this too shall pass

What you gotta do to find a cure
For the things that make you feel so inpure
Just now I don't know for sure
Sometimes misery has a stange lure

Then your hopes and ideals you embrace
Then tehre's what's staring you in the face
Sorrowful times are here but they won't last
Because this too shall pass

Then your hopes and ideal you embrace
Then there's what's staring you in the face
Sorrowful times are here but they won't last
Because this too shall pass

Na na na na na na na na

This too shall pass

    This song helped me in one of the most stressful time's in my life. We are first time home buyer's. We were trying to get our house and when it seemed like we were finally getting somewhere, there would be something to knock us back down the ladder so to speak. Finally it had gotten to the point to where I said forget it, I am giving up, and it is just not to be. So one day while listening to bruce which is my favorite singer, I listened to this too shall pass. I thought you know bruce is right. Whatever may come our way whether it be good or bad this too shall pass. So now when thing's happen that I don't understand I just listen to bruce sing and think this too shall pass. Thank you bruce for such a great song that I can relate too. You are amazing. Thank's again!
