For folks, especially the younger, confused ones who are feeling a bit down lately.

Here is the lyrics, and here are some excerpts that I like:

“Don’t worry about the future. Or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubble gum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind, the kind that blindside you at 4 p.m. on some idle Tuesday.”

“Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts. Don’t put up with people who are reckless with yours.”

“Enjoy your body. Use it every way you can. Don’t be afraid of it or of what other people think of it. It’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever own.”

And, “Don’t mess too much with your hair or by the time you’re 40 it will look 85.”
