Lesson One Lyrics

(DRUM COUNT-OFF)
(SYNTHESIZER SOLO)

Come on and say after me...
I'm happy you're happy
As can be;
Hip hip hooray!
Slowly learning that life is okay...
Say after me:
"Ain't no better to be safe than sorry."

Some years (I)/[can] [make] (a lesson)/(a lesson,) my number one.
All's good: that starts, well I cruise with the sun.
So needless to say,
I'm odds and ends,
I'm being (SCREAM, SCREAM-SCREAM-SCREAM) (I'm being taken away.)/[I'll be stumbling away.]
Today's another day to find you;
Life goes away.
I'll be coming for your love, okay?
Some years (I)/[can] [make] (a lesson)/(a lesson,) my number one.
All's good: that starts (while)/(when) I cruise with the sun.
Some years (I)/[can] [make] (a lesson)/(a lesson,) my number one.
All's good: that starts (when)/(, well) I cruise with the sun.

(SYNTHESIZER SOLO)

Say after me...
I'm happy you're happy
As can be;
Hip hip hooray!
Slowly learning that life is okay...

(SYNTHESIZER SOLO)

I know that life's okay.

(SYNTHESIZER SOLO)

I know that life's all good.

I know that I could be wrong.

A-a-a-ah, a-ah, a-ah!
I know this'd better be good! Oh, whoa...

Some years (I)/[can] [make] (a lesson)/(a lesson,) my number one.
All's good: that starts, well I cruise with the sun.
Some years (I)/(can) make a lesson my only one!
