Be extra careful dear
Whom you choose to open up to
Because not every smile you see
Is happy about your success

Be extra wary dear
Where you choose to set your feet
Because a shoe in the wrong place
Gets worn out very easily

Be extra careful dear
Whom you choose to be your friend
Because not everyone that surrounds you
Will come in handy in times of downfall

Be extra wary dear
The kind of leader you want to become
Real leaders ain't self-spoken
But are rather spoken about
