I adore this song.
There have been two great polarisations at various points in my life that have very nearly been characterised and described perfectly by the lyrics:
"If you dance for much very longer, you'll be known as the boy whose always dancing...
If you work for much very longer you'll be known as the boy whose always working..."
I think I'm still a misanthropist, in part. And that is at the heart of it.
