  • Slow down Jo
    Anybody ever tell you that you move too fast?
    Anybody ever tell you how to make a good thing last?
    'Cause it ainâ??t like that

    First you gotta slow down Jo.
    Last night I was talking to some friends of mine.
    A.J.â??s afraid youâ??re gonna kill your time or lose your mind.

    If you donâ??t slow down Jo.
    Anybody ever tell you if you lose the knack.
    Anybody ever tell you that itâ??s true
    You can get it back?
    But not like that

    It ainâ??t by kicking down the walls & pissing off your friends.
    Every time the cards donâ??t fall your way.
    It ainâ??t by poking out your eyes when you see something you donâ??t like.
    Even your mama said she donâ??t want to see you spent at 25,
    So come on Jo stay alive Writer/s: M. WARD
