You won’t lag behind, because you’ll have the speed.
You’ll pass the whole gang and you’ll soon take the lead.
Wherever you fly, you’ll be the best of the best.
Wherever you go, you will top all the rest.

Except when you don’t
Because, sometimes, you won’t.

I would not like them anywhere.
I do not like green eggs and ham.
I do not like them Sam I Am.

nothing is going to get better. It’s not.
