Slow down you crazy child You’re so ambitious for a juvenile But then if you’re so smart tell me why You are still so afraid?Where’s the fire, what’s the hurry about? You better cool it off before you burn it out You got so much to do and only So many hours in a dayBut you know that when the truth is told That you can get what you want Or you an just get old You’re gonna kick off before you even get halfway through When will you realize Vienna waits for you
Slow down you’re doing fine You can’t be everything you want to be Before your time Although it’s so romantic on the borderline tonight Too bad but it’s the life you lead You’re so ahead of yourself That you forgot what you need Though you can see when you’re wrong
But you know you can’t always see when you’re right You got your passion you got your pride But don’t you know only fools are satisfied? Dream on, but don’t imagine they’ll all come true When will you realize Vienna waits for you
Slow down you crazy child Take the phone off the hook And disappeaar for a while It’s alright you can afford to lose a day or two When will you realize Vienna waits for you.
