Children in a line
 Outta be benign 
But following the leader 
You can underplay  There will come a day, oh whoa

 Lowering of voice  Imaginary choice
You've got your pick of either  Heavy head or heart  Business faking art
Oh, oh, whoa, whoa

Life is long
So far it's been easy
But I just want you to know

 Anticipating bills
 Summarizing skills
For following the leader  Worthy of your trust 
Obedience, a must
Oh, oh, whoa

I need to obey someone 
And I would never betray that someone 
I find everyday someone
Gets in line
In line

In matters of import  Muster up support 
To follow the leader 
Walk the dotted line
 Initial here and sign
Oh, oh, whoa, oh

Life is short 
So you choose your battles  Sometimes all you can choose 

 Everything confirms
In no uncertain terms
You're following the leader 
They got your number and
 Their wish is your command 
Oh, oh, whoa

Don't let them get away with it
Don't give them satisfaction 
Fall in, but don't fall for it
You're not the only one
And you know it
Just so you know it
