If you walk alone
In darkness
Don't turn
Go the wrong way

If you associate
Among the evil
Don't follow them
Down the wrong road
Mmm, mmm, mmm

You may even flirt
With a little danger
And before long
Without even knowing
It will be hard to find your way back home

Just turn around
See your family behind you
Don't you see the trouble?
Don't you see the trouble way up ahead?

Don't you know that they care
About how you're doin'?
Don't be a fool and
Lose your head

Don't flirt
Don't mess with danger
Just remember what goes around
Will come back right at you
And you may never find your way back home
No, no
You may never find your way back home

No, no

No, you may never

It'll be hard to find your way back home
No, no

No, no

You'll have no friends
They'll be forsaken
You mess around in the street
Your life might be taken
Oh, no

It's a real bad, bad
Bad, bad
