They say you're a fool they feel you resisting
They tell you you'll never go very far
But they'll be the same ones that stand in the distance
And fall in the shadow of your shining star.

Just keep on the same road and keep on your toes
Just keep your heart steady as she goes
And let them call you what they will
It don't matter a rose by any name is still a rose.

The kindess of strangers it seems like a fable
But they get to seek what I see
That you can make it if you are able
To believe in yourself the way I do.

Just keep on the same road and keep on your toes
Just keep your heart steady as she goes
And let them call you what they will
It don't matter a rose by any name is still a rose.

'Cause a deal is a deal in the heart of the dream
And a spade is a spade if you know what I mean
A rose is a rose is a rose.

Deal with the scoffers is part of the bargain
They heckle from backrows and they bark at the moon
The flowers are fading in times bitter garden
But yours is only beginning to bloom.

Just keep on the same road and keep on your toes
Just keep your heart steady as she goes
And let them call you what they will
And just remember a rose by any name is still a rose.

A rose by any name is still a rose...

    one of the most inspiring songs I've listened to. All Suzie is saying is; Believe in yourself in the midst of negative criticism. Winners are the ones who persist till the end. Here does what others perceive to be impossible. Mediocre does what others expect of them.
