We’ll save the lost guy, Adapt him to life, Protect him from durance! We’ll give him a chance With studying grants And also insurance! As life flows through time, Grows up that lost guy - A dare-devil kind, they say. One really can dare In our foe’s care - But till the Last Judgment Day. There you’ll get it all, Wear, feed and even songs, Just do what they want you! Ones who’re under age, They give for their wages What Mom and Dad ought to. It’s me that lost guy, I lead a fast life - A dare-devil kind, they say. One really can dare In our foe’s care - But till the Last Judgment Day.
