A Lesson Or Two

You want this beauty
In all its boldness
You’ll make it your duty
To take it with coldness

Do what you’re told
As you’re told to do
It’s not beautiful or bold
But is what’s asked of you

You wish to be rich
Without the fame
Because life’s a b*tch
When you’re put to shame

So you need to start playing the game
Playing strictly by its rules
Oh, how you’ve longed to blame
Any of these many fanatical fools

You can’t be clever
If you can skip school
Because you would never
Learn how to be “cool”

No, you have got to stop
Thinking your life is hard
The only way to the top
Is not to drop your guard.
