I’m an Evil Mastermind…with Heart

I’m an Evil Mastermind…with Heart

You gotta have heart
All you really need is heart
When the odds are sayin’
You’ll never win
That’s when a grin
Should start.
You gotta have hope
Mustn’t sit around and mope
Nothin’s half as better as it may appear
Wait’ll next year
And hope.

—Lyrics to “You Gotta Have Heart” from DAMN YANKEES
