Jeffrey & Elijah Sing "Don't Stop Trying" (Sarah Bettens)

[NB: modified lyrics are in red]

Don't stop trying, there's always reason to go on living
as long as you can breathe.
Stay clear of extremes, just say what you mean
but try not to be mean.

You should say thank you often, like your hair,
wave to strangers everywhere.
Do what you're supposed to do
don't look at what the others do.

Think before you buy a car,
don't marry someone you met at a bar.
There's no such thing as going too far
Love who you are.

Don't be scared of what's ahead,
but wear a helmet to protect your head.
Be aware, say you care, don't say fair ...

Stay close to the hands that raised you, watch for signs
never waste expensive wine.
Spoil your body, spoil yourself,
never cheat and share your wealth. Sing when you're glad,
close the door if you sound bad
Don't believe a man who knows he's right,
don't skip ahead, enjoy your flight.

Be nice to your dog, drive slow in the fog,
convince yourself to write a song.
Change clothes every day,
call ahead when you're late,
Be safe when you are planning to get laid going on a date.

Read what you like.
Be on your brother's cousin's side.
It's okay to wonder why,
but don't expect to understand your life

Don't expect to understand your life.
