Three very important things

One came right from the start

The other two followed

In the womb, they were provided

But now, you’ve got to learn

Suck. Swallow. Breathe.

The first two are the best

Because the third one’s old news

The first two say go

The third says stop

It’s a difficult thing to learn

When the bottle’s pressed to your lips

Some men never learn

Some men never leave

But listen when I say

Don’t forget to breathe

When it all becomes too much

Don’t forget to breathe

If you put it off too long

It’s harder to get it back

So take it nice and slow

And don’t forget to breathe

Before you took your first breath

God breathed the breath of life

He blew it into your nostrils

On your way out of the womb

So every time you breathe

You reflect his very nature

So take the gift he gave you

And don’t forget to breathe
