I don't know what to be

It's not so easy to find out later
About the necessary knowledge for survival
You think you know enough to get you through life
But find out too late of chances passed by

An early start is not so important
But timing is most essential
Opportunity gone is gone forever
You'll never know how much it could have been

And once gone, gone forever
You will find out to your cost
A better use can be made of your time

And don't think that life is easy
You may never get a lucky break
They'll put you down, cold and unknown
A total failure from womb to grave
