Lyrics

Life is hard and don't last too long
There's no difference
Between what is right and wrong
I rest my defense

When you're young you grab what you can
Make your name around the land
But remember all the things you've been taught
And never, never get caught

Things will always be very tough
No time for compassion
'Cause you will never have enough
Got to get your ration

Middle-aged, you got to jump right in
Cause the chances are growing thin
Just remember the things you've been taught
And never, never ever.

'Cause when you're young you gotta grab what you can
Make your name around the land
But remember all the things you've been taught
And never, never ever, get caught (don't get caught)

There's no way to escape from time
A little love helps to mend
What's the harm in a tiny crime
Before you descend?
