Do not play with matches
Cause matches will start a fire
Keep your foot above flames
When walking on the wire
Life is sweet but time is short
Keep your train on the track


When youre whistlin past the graveyard
And the graveyard whistles back
Dont forget your mother
She brought you in this world
You are the dream that she once had
Since she was just a little girl
Send her cards and flowers
Dont step on the crack

Repeat Chorus

The world dont owe you nothing

Dont even know your name
You might be a king or queen
But the end treats you just the same
Drop your crumbs before you leave
Dont cover up your tracks

Repeat Chorus

Someday you may loose your true love
To a stranger in a crowd
Same story for a thousand years
That makes you cry out loud
But one day shell find that stranger
Is just a con man in a gunny sack

Repeat Chorus

Go to your confession
Read your horoscope
Tell a white lie to a rabbi
Make a collect call to the Pope
But the faith that will save you
Will also break your back

Repeat Chorus

You might be in a wheelchair
Or have to step so light
Around the world in 80 days
At the speed of light
Everything that is given to you
May one day be taken back

Repeat Chorus
