If you walk alone in darkness
Don't turn, go the wrong way
If you associate among the evil
Don't follow them down the wrong road
You may even flirt with a little danger
And before long without even knowing
It will be hard to find your way back home
Just turn around, see your family behind you
Don't you see the trouble? Don't you see the trouble way up ahead?
Don't you know that they care about how you're doin'?
Don't be a fool and lose your head
Don't flirt, don't mess with danger, no
Just remember what goes around will come back right at you?
And you may never find your way back home, no, no
You may never find your way back home
No, no, you may never
It'll be hard to find your way back home
Naw, you'll have no friends, they'll be forsaken
You mess around in the street
Your life might be taken, oh no
It's a real bad, bad
Bad, bad, bad
