You're on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who'll decide where to go.
You'll look up and down streets. Look 'em over with care.
About some you will say, "I don't choose to go there."
With your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet,
you're too smart to go down any not-so-good street.

Yes! You will, indeed!
(98 and 3 / 4 percent guaranteed.)
This place is Hades, where bad people go,
Hellfire and brimstone forever flow.
Devils dance and devils shout
My how they jump about.
They have a long rusty fork
They roast you on the end like pork.
They stick you in the ear
they stick you in the rear
they stick you in the eye
They stick you til you cry
It does no good to call for Mama,
She ran off with the fifth Dalai Lama.
Does Hell last forever? That's what they say.
Let's hope this isn't Judgment Day.
