Lyric of the Day: Mary Schmich

Enjoy your body, use it every way you can
Don’t be afraid of it, or what other people think of it,
It’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever own

Understand that friends come and go,
but for the precious few that should hold on.
Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and lifestyle,
because the older you get,
the more you need the people you knew when you were young.

Don’t mess too much with your hair,
or by the time you’re 40, it will look 85.

-Baz Luhrmann, Everybody’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen) :

I remember this song. It was in the same era as Vitamin C’s graduation song, during the time of Nickelodeon’s All That.

According to Wikipedia, “the song sampled Luhrmann’s remixed version of the song “Everybody’s Free (To Feel Good)” by Rozalla.” Luhrmann, as an Ausralian, is an awfully good enunciator.

Good words to keep in mind for a Friday night.
