Tightrope walk
Tiptoe so delicately
Think and talk
All simultaneously

Got to say what you mean in the most polite of ways

Balance beam
You’ve got charisma and you’re so p.c.
Ought to be on television

Colgate whites prob’ly glow when you turn out the lights

But how many pins can you juggle ‘fore they all come crashing down?
That mind must get awfully muddled with so many voices spinning round

Tightrope walk
Tiptoe so delicately
Think and talk
All simultaneously

Got to say what you mean in the most polite of ways
