Seek out the light between
Time and confusion glowing up ahead
Instead of slipping through
You bit off more, much more than you could chew

You could not Swallow It
No baby you're not ready, slow down
And take the time to evolve
You could not Swallow It
No baby you're not ready, slow down

We had a lot to learn
Table manners and grace, how to wait your turn when
Time came to clear your slate
You had too much, had too much on your plate

You could not Swallow It
No baby you're not ready, slow down
And take the time to evolve
You could not Swallow It
No baby you're not ready, slow down

Take your medicine and crawl before you walk
Think it through before you open you open your mouth to talk
Be an advocate of joy
Find your little heart's desire and

Follow it
Whoa baby you're not ready, slow down
And take the time to evolve
You could not Swallow It
No baby you're not ready, slow down

(Baby you're not ready! )

You could not Swallow It
No baby you're not ready, slow down
And take the time to evolve
You could not Swallow It
No baby you're not ready, now

(Slow down! )

No, no, no, no!

Don't be afraid, this is your year
It's gonna be alright, you're a performer
Just take your time, but not too much time

No, no, no, no!
