(Alright?)
You want to be a bookworm?
You want to be aloof?
You want to sit in judgment,
Looking down from the roof?
Try a wee sensation: but first you have to want to join in.
You should be, should be raging
Down the freeway
With some friends from the mall.
Don't stay forever in your limbo:
Fly before you fall,
Little sparrow on the schoolyard wall.

So dress a little dangerous
And modify your walk.
