lyrics

When life starts to get crushin’
I recall what my daddy said
“Don’t you know that fools just rush in
Where wise men fear to tread”

I’ve heard it said by people
That you gotta trust your gut
I’d like it all to be so simple
I wish that I could, but

First is the worst
And last is the best
If you go before you know
You’re gonna fail the test

If you’re first you’re cursed
If you wait you’re great
Don’t you pout just sort it out
Try to corroborate

It’s not a crime to take some time
And try to figure out
The pratfalls and the pitfalls
And what everything’s about

So think it through, then make your move
Don’t just act on instinct
You think you’ve got some things to prove
But get yourself in sync

First is the worst
And last is the best
If you go before you know
You’re gonna fail the test

“Wait a minute, hold up son
Think about what you have done
Take your lessons from your past
Don’t be first and make things last”

First is the worst
And last is the best
If you go before you know
You’re gonna fail the test
