Get the balance right

There's more besides
The little house in the countryside
Learn to demand
And sometimes lie
Get the balance right
Get the balance right
Be responsible
Stable but gullible
Concerned and caring
Help the helpless
But always remain
Ultimately selfish
When 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
Don't turn this way
Don't turn that way
Straight down the middle until next Thursday
First to the left
Then back to the right
Twist and turn 'til you've got it right
