Taking Notes and Stealing Quotes on this song

Cover-version

* 

 

Life is hard and donít last too long

Thereís no difference

Between what is right and wrong

I rest my defence

 

     When youíre young you grab what you can

     Make your name around the land

     But remember all the things youíve been taught

     And never, never get caught

 

Things will always be very tough

No time for compassion

íCos you will never have enough

Got to get your ration

 

     Middle-aged, you got to jump right in

     Cause the chances are growing thin

     Just remember the things youíve been taught

     And never, never ever Ö

 

     íCos when youíre young you gotta grab what you can

     Make your name around the land

     But remember all the things youíve been taught

     And never, never ever, get caught (donít get caught)

 

Thereís no way to escape from time

A little love helps to mend

Whatís the harm in a tiny crime

Before you descend?

 

     This is the age to try and relax

     Have some fun before the axe

     Just remember the things youíve been taught

     And never, never ever Ö

 

     In middle age you gotta jump right in

     íCos the chances are growing thin

     Just remember all the things youíve been taught

     And never, never ever, get caught (donít get caught)

 

And that is the end of the line

Or maybe itís not

Just bequeath them some stolen wine

Or whatever youíve got

The things you slipped away without

Will make some people jump and shout

Just remember the things youíve been taught

And never, never ever Ö

 

     When youíre young you gotta grab what you can

     Make your name around the land

     But remember all the things youíve been taught

     And never, never ever Ö

 

     Itís the age to try and relax

     Have some fun before the axe

     Just remember the things youíve been taught

     And never, never ever, get caught (donít get caught)
