"YOLO"

The Lonely Island feat. Adam Levine & Kendrick Lamar

[Kendrick Lamar:]

Take no chances (no chances)

Stop freelancin' (right now)

Invest in your future,

Don't dilute your finances (uh huh)

401K, make sure it's low risk

Then get some real estate (how much?)

4.2% thirty-year mortgage,

That's important, that's a great deal

And if you can't afford it,

Don't forge it on your last bill

Renting is for suckers right now

A dependable savings,

And you'll retire with money in your account.

Beast.
