There's more besides joyrides
Little house in the countryside
Understand, learn to demand
Compromise, sometimes lie

Get the balance right, get the balance right

Be responsible, respectable

Concerned and caring, help the helpless
But always remain ultimately selfish

Get the balance right, get the balance right

You think you've got a hold of it all
You haven't got a hold at all
When you reach the top, get ready to drop
Prepare yourself for the fall; you're gonna fall
It's almost predictable

Don't take this way, don't take that way
Straight down the middle until next Thursday
Push to the left, back to the right
Twist and turn till you've got it right

Get the balance right
