Wherever you go, you’ll top all the rest. Except when you don’t, because sometimes you won’t. I’m sorry to say so, but sadly, it’s true, that bang-ups and hang-ups can happen to you. You can get all hung up/in a prickly perch/And your gang will fly on. You’ll be left in a lurch. You’ll come down from the lunch with an unpleasant bump. And the chances are, then, that you’ll be in a slump. And when you’re in a slump, you’re not in for much fun. Un-slumping yourself is not easily done.
