YOLO, you only live once

The battle cry of a generation This life is a precious gift
So don't get too crazy It's not worth the risk

You know that we are still young
So don't be dumb
Don't trust anyone Cause you only live once

Ugh, you only live once
That's the motto So take a chill pill
Ease off the throttle  Never go to loud clubs Cause it's bad for your ears
Your friends will all be sorry When they can't hear

And stay the hell away from drugs Cause they're not legal Then bury all your money in the backyard Like a beagle 
'Cause you should never trust a bank
They've been known to fail
And never travel by car, a bus
Boat or by rail

And don't travel by plane And don't travel at all Built a bomb shelter basement
With titanium walls

And wear titanium suits
In case pianos fall on ya
And never go in saunas Cause they're crawlin' with piranhas 
And never take the stairs 'Cause they're often unsafe
You only live once
Don't let it go to waste 
You know that we are still young
So hold off on the fun
Cook your meat 'til it's done Cause you only live once

And here's another piece of advice Stay away from kids Cause their hair is filled with mad lice

There's no such thing As too much Purell This a cautionary tale
Word to George Orwell

So don't 1980 force Any plugs into sockets Always wear a chastity belt
And triple lock it

Then hire a taster Make him check your food for poison And if you think your mailman is a spy
Then destroy him

No blankets or pajamas They can choke you in your sleep Two words about furniture Killing machines  Board your windows up
The sun is bad for your health And always wear a straight jacket
So your safe from yourself 
Take no chances (no chances)
Stop freelancin' (right now) Invest in your future Don't dilute your finances (uh huh)
401K, make sure it's low risk
Then get some real estate (how much?)
4.2% thirty year mortgage That's important, that's a great deal
And if you can't afford it
Don't forge it on your last bill Renting is for suckers right now
A dependable savings
And you'll retire with money in your account Beast

YOLO, say no no Isolate yourself
And just roll solo
Be care-folo
You oughta look out
Also stands for YOLO 
You know that we are still young
Burn the prints off your thumbs Then pull out all your teeth So you can't bite your tongue 
Only on this earth for a short time, time
So don't go outside, cause you don't want to die, die

Just take our advice and hide
And scream YOLO to the sky

You oughta look out
