Lyric "Yolo"

[Intro: Andy Samberg]
YOLO, you only live once
The battle cry of a generation
This life is a precious gift
So don't get too crazy
It's not worth the risk


[Hook 1: Adam Levine]
You know that we are still young
So don't be dumb
Don't trust anyone
Cause you only live once


Verse 1: Kiv, Jorm, & Andy
Ugh, you only live once
That's the motto
So take a chill pill,
Ease off the throttle


Never go to loud clubs
Cause it's bad for your ears
Your friends will all be sorry
When they can't hear


And stay the hell away from drugs
Cause they're not legal
Then bury all your money in the backyard
Like a beagle


Cause you should never trust a bank
They've been known to fail
And never travel by car, a bus
Boat or by rail


And don't travel by plane
And don't travel at all
Build a bomb shelter basement
With titanium walls


And wear titanium suits
In case pianos fall on you
And never go to saunas
Cause they're crawlin' with piranhas


And never take the stairs
Cause they're often unsafe
You only live once
Don't let it go to waste


[Hook 2: Adam Levine]
You know that we are still young
So hold off on the fun
Cook your meat till it's done
Cause you only live once


[Verse 2: Jorm, Kiv, & Andy]
Yeah, and here's another piece of advice:
Stay away from kids
Cause their hair is filled with mad lice


There's no such thing
As too much Purell
This a cautionary tale
Word to George Orwell


So don't 1980 force
Any plugs into sockets
Always wear a chastity belt
And triple lock it


Then hire a taster
Make him check your food for poison
And if you think your mailman is a spy
Then destroy him


No blankets or pajamas
They can choke you in your sleep
Two words about furniture:
Killing machines


Board your windows up
The sun is bad for your health
And always wear a straight jacket
So you're safe from yourself


[Verse 3: Kendrick Lamar]
Take no chances, stop freelancin'
Invest in your future, don't dilute your finances
401K, make sure it's low risk
Then get some real estate (how much?)
4.2%, Thirty year mortgage
That's important, that's a great deal
And if you can't afford it, don't forge it on your last bill
Renting is for suckers right now, a dependable savings
And you'll retire with money in your account
Beast


[Bridge: All]
YOLO, say no no
Isolate yourself
And just roll solo
Be care-folo
You oughta look out
Also stands for YOLO
You know that we are still young
Burn the prints off your thumbs
Then pull out all your teeth
So you can't bite your tongue
Only on this earth for a short time, time
So don't go outside, cause you don't want to die, die
Just take our advice and hide
And scream YOLO to the sky
You oughta look out

The Lonely Island

The Lonely Island

The Lonely Island is an American comedy trio, formed by Akiva Schaffer, Andy Samberg, and Jorma Taccone in Berkeley, California in 2001. The trio first met the previous decade in junior high. After graduating from college, they regrouped and moved to Los Angeles, California, where they struggled to find work and began making short films, combining absurdist comedy and occasionally music. Among the first performers to post their material on the Internet, they involved themselves with Channel 101, a non-profit monthly short film festival. Their popularity at the screenings led to unsuccessful pilot deals with Fox and Comedy Central, but…
