Stay Positive

Whoa, ho, ho, whoa, ho, ho, whoa, ho, ho
Whoa, ho, ho, whoa, ho, ho, whoa, ho, ho

I've got a lot of old friends that are getting back and touching
It's a pretty good feeling, yeah it feels pretty good
I get a lot of double takes when I'm coming round the corners
And it's mostly pretty nice, yeah it's mostly pretty alright

'Cause most kids give me credit for being down with it
When it was back in the day back when things were way different
When the youth of today and the early seven seconds
Taught me some of life's most valuable lessons

There's gonna come a time when the scene'll seem less sunny though
Probably get druggy and the kids will seem too skinny
There's gonna come a time when she's gonna have to go
With who ever's gonna get her the highest

There's gonna come a time when the true scene leaders
Will forget where they differ and get big picture
'Cause the kids at the shows, they'll have kids of their own
And the sing along songs will be our scriptures

Whoa, ho, ho, whoa, ho, ho, whoa, ho, ho
We gotta stay positive
Whoa, ho, ho, whoa, ho, ho, whoa, ho, ho
We gotta stay positive

Whoa, ho, ho, whoa, ho, ho, whoa, ho, ho
We gotta stay positive
Whoa, ho, ho, whoa, ho, ho, whoa, ho, ho
We gotta stay positive

When the chaperon crowned us the king and the queen
I knew that we'd arrived at a unified scene
And all those little lambs from my dreams
Well, they were there too

'Cause it's one thing to start it with a positive jam
And it's another thing to see it on through
And we couldn't have even done this
If it wasn't for you

Whoa, ho, ho, whoa, ho, ho, whoa, ho, ho
We gotta stay positive
Whoa, ho, ho, whoa, ho, ho, whoa, ho, ho
We gotta stay positive

Whoa, ho, ho, whoa, ho, ho, whoa, ho, ho
We gotta stay positive
Whoa, ho, ho, whoa, ho, ho, whoa, ho, ho
