Lyrics


Get The Balance Right

There's more besides

Joyrides

The 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


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


Almost


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


Get the balance right

Get the balance right
