The Lonely Island - YOLO lyrics

American comedy troupe The Lonely Island are back and they're looking for that new 'surprising' smash with the help of Adam Levine and Kendrick Lamar on their new single "YOLO"! The music video for the song was debuted as a 'digital short' on the January 26, 2013 episode of 'Saturday Night Live' which saw also the return of Andy Samberg since he left SNL. "YOLO" stands out for 'You only live once'.

YOLO lyrics

Adam Levine: YOLO

Andy: YOLO, you only live once.

The battle cry of a generation.
This life is a precious gift.
So don't get too crazy,
It's not worth the risk.


Adam Levine:
You know that we are still young.
So don't be dumb.
Don't trust anyone,
Cause you only live once.

Verse 1

Kiv: Ugh, you only live once,
That's the motto.
So take a chill pill,
Ease off the throttle.

Jorm: Never go to loud clubs
Cause it's bad for your ears.
Your friends will all be sorry
But they can't hear.

Andy: And stay the hell away from drugs
Cause they're not legal.
Then bury all your money in the backyard
Like a beagle.

Kiv: Cause you should never trust a bank
They've been known to fail.
And never travel by car, a bus,
Boat or by rail.

Jorm: And don't travel by plane.
And don't travel at all.
Build a bomb shelter basement
With titanium walls.

Andy: And wear titanium suits
In case pianos fall on ya.
And never go in saunas
Cause they're crawlin' with piranhas.

Kiv: And never take the stairs
Cause they're often unsafe.
You only live once,
Don't let it go to waste.


Adam Levine:
You know that we are still young,
So hold off on the fun.
Cook your meat 'til it's done,
Cause you only live once.

Verse 2

Jorm: Yeah,
And here's another piece of advice:
Stay away from kids
Cause their hair is filled with mad lice.

Andy: There's no such thing
As too much Purell.
This a cautionary tale,
Word to George Orwell.

Kiv: So don't 1984
Sending plugs into sockets.
Always wear a chastity belt
And triple lock it.

Jorm: Then hire a taster
Make him check your food for poison.
And if you think your mailman is a spy
Then destroy him.

Andy: No blankets or pajamas
They can choke you in your sleep.
Two words about furniture:
Killing machines.

Kiv: Board your windows up
The sun is bad for your health.
And always wear a straight jacket
So your safe from yourself.

Kendrick Lamar: Uh huh,
Take no chances (no chances)
Stop freelancin' (right now)
Invest in your future,
Don't dilute your finances (uh huh)
401k, 'k? make sure it's low risk
Then get some real estate (how much?)
4.2% Thirty year mortgage,
That's important, that's a great deal
And if you can't afford it,
Don't forge it on your last bill
Renting is for suckers right now
A dependable savings,
And you'll retire with money in your account.

YOLO, say no no.
Isolate yourself
And just roll solo
Be careful-o
You oughta look out
Also stands for YOLO.


Adam Levine:
You know that we are still young.
Burn the prints off your thumbs.
Then pull out all your teeth,
So you can't bite your tongue.

Only on this earth for a short time, time
So don't go outside, cause you don't want to die, die.

Just take our advice and hide
And scream YOLO to the sky.

Andy: You oughta look out.
