You'll have to be careful

Full Text

1 If you would be healthy,
And light on your feet,
You’ll have to be careful
About what you eat.

Refrain:
Ready, steady ever,
Clean and healthy, too!
Working, playing, all the time,
We’ll be strong and true!

2 To keep your mind active,
And quick as a wink,
You’ll have to be careful
About what you drink. [Refrain]

3 If you would be useful,
And helpful and true,
You’ll have to be careful
About what you do. [Refrain]

4 If you would be holy,
Like Jesus has taught,
You’ll have to be careful
About ev’ry thought. [Refrain]

5 Just keep your mind steady,
And keep your heart gay;
For then you’ll be ready
For work or for play. [Refrain]
