YOLO Lyrics

by The Lonely Island

Adam Levine: YOLO

Andy: YOLO, you only live once.

The battle cry of a generation.
This life is a precious gift.
So dont get too crazy,
its not worth the risk.


Adam Levine:
You know that we are still young.
So dont be dumb.
Dont trust anyone,
cause you only live once.

Verse 1

Kiv: Ugh, you only live once,
thats the motto.
So take a chill pill,
ease off the throttle.

Jorm: Never go to loud clubs
cause its bad for your ears.
Your friends will all be sorry
when they cant hear.

Andy: And stay the hell away from drugs
cause theyre not legal.
Then bury all your money in the backyard
like a beagle.

Kiv: Cause you should never trust a bank
Theyve been known to fail.
And never travel by car, a bus,
boat or by rail.

Jorm: And dont travel by plane.
And dont travel at all.
Built a bomb shelter basement
with titanium walls.

Andy: And where titanium suits
in case pianos fall on ya.
And never go in saunas
cause theyre crawlin with piranhas.

Kiv: And never take the stairs
cause theyre often unsafe.
You only live once,
dont let it go to waste.


Adam Levine:
You know that we are still young.
So hold off on the fun.
Cook your meat till its done,
cause you only live once.

Adam Levine:
You know that we are still young,
so hold off on the fun.
Cook your meat til its done,
cause you only live once.

Verse 2

Jorm: Yeah,
and heres another piece of advice:
Stay away from kids
cause their hair is filled with mad lice.

Andy: Theres no such thing
as too much Purell.
This a cautionary tale,
word to George Orwell.

Kiv: So don't 1980 force
any plugs into sockets.
Always wear a chastity belt
and triple lock it.

Jorm: Then hire a taster
make him check your food for poison.
And if you think your mailman is a spy
then destroy him.

Andy: No blankets or pajamas
they can choke you in your sleep.
Two words about furniture:
killing machines.

Kiv: Board your windows up
the sun is bad for your health.
And always wear a straight jacket
so your safe from yourself.

Kendrick Lamar:
Take no chances (no chances)
Stop freelancin (right now)
Invest in your future,
dont dilute your finances (uh huh)
401K, make sure its low risk
Then get some real estate (how much?)
4.2%Thirty year mortgage,
thats important, thats a great deal
And if you cant afford it,
dont forge it on your last bill
Renting is for suckers right now
A dependable savings,
and youll retire with money in your account.

YOLO, say no no.
Isolate yourself
and just roll solo
Be care-folo
You oughta look out
also stands for YOLO.


Adam Levine:
You know that we are still young.
Burn the prints off your thumbs.
Then pull out all your teeth,
so you cant bite your tongue.

Only on this earth for a short time, time
So dont go outside, cause you dont want to die, die.

Just take our advice and hide
and scream YOLO to the sky.

Andy: You oughta look out.
