There's more besides joyrides
A little house in the countryside
Understand, learn to demand,
Compromise, and sometimes lie

Get the balance right, get the balance right

Be responsible, respectable,
Stable but gullible
Concerned and caring, help the helpless
But always remain ultimately selfish

Get the balance right, get the balance right

You think you've got a hold of it all
You haven't got a hold at all
When you reach the top, get ready to drop
Prepare yourself for the fall, you're gonna fall
It's almost predictable
(Almost)

Don't turn this way, don't turn that way
Straight down the middle until next Thursday
Reverse to the left, then back to the right
Twist and turn 'til you've got it right

Get the balance right, get the balance right
