Winners and losers,
They're hard, fast people--
But get caught in a draw,
It doesn't matter if you're Billy;
You'll be counting the seconds
Until life is over
Try to avoid the doldrums;
Don't get caught up in a stale wind.
So many avenues to nowhere,
And I walk pretty fast.
Take it from one who knows,
It's better to quickly win or lose.
Hawks don't hunt through hurricanes.
They wait for the tiniest updraft
To carry your picture into sight,
And when you least suspect it,
They pick you off like bones
Out of a Colonel Sanders basket.
Give yourself a chance,
And for God's sake, get the lead out.
If you're going to run, run hard.
Don't waste time looking back,
Don't turn around, and for God's sake,
Don't tell the bastards where you're headed.
The second you start negotiation
Is when you are caught in a draw.
Shooting stars don't stop for autographs.
Why should you, go getter?
This is some of the best advice you'll ever get,
So don't let me catch you hanging around.
