You've Gotta Know When to Stop

Sunday, 01 March 2015 13:29

The shedding of tears should wet your cheek,
Not soak you through and through, -
And cakes are things you put away
When you've had one or two. -
Too much of anything can only do you harm -
So may I give you this advice straight from the palm.

You gotta know when to stop, you know,
Put on the brakes and take it slow.
It's worth us repeating again, -
You gotta know when.

A merry-go-round is fun to ride
But not for very long.
You have to curb your appetite -
At times you must be strong.
A little less is better than a little more -
A camel's back went crack one day all for a straw.

You gotta know when to stop, you know,
Put on the brakes and take it slow.
It's worth us repeating again, -
You gotta know when.

We all like to laugh and joke about
And play those silly games
Where ev'ryone pokes out their tongues
And calls each other names.
But keep on making faces and you'd best beware
For in the morning you might find that they're still there.

You gotta know when to stop, you know,
Put on the brakes and take it slow.
It's worth us repeating again, -
You gotta know when.

Music John Barry
