Majority knows best!

Slow down child You skip and you slip  without a care in the world You swish and you sway and say all your thoughts out loud You shouldn't be so happy You should carry some worry Slow down child lest you meet your fall  We were once young like you, you know we thought we knew it all But life will shake you up good, it will show you who's who in the larger scale of things You shouldn't be so full of hope Slow down child  you will get your heart broken It may seem like it's for forever right now  but we can tell you it won't last Haven't you heard it said, "All good things come to an end"?
