20: The Guys | Oh, the places you'll go...

21: You have brains in your head You have feet in your shoes You can steer yourself Any direction you choose You're on your own, and you know what you know And YOU are the guy who'll decide where to go. | You'll look up and down streets-- look them over with care About some you will say, "I don't choose to go there." With your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet, you're too smart to go down any not-so-good street.

22: Out there things can happen, and frequently do To people as footsy and brainy as you | And when things start to happen, don't worry, don't stew Just go right along... You'll start happening too. | And you may not find any you'll want to go down In that case, of course, you'll head straight out of town. It's opener there in the wide open air.


24: You'll be on your way up! You'll be seeing great sights! | You'll join the high fliers who soar to high heights!

25: You won't lag behind because you'll have the speed | You'll pass the whole gang and you'll soon take the lead. | Wherever you fly, | you'll be the best of the best | Wherever you go, you'll top all the rest.

28: Except when you don't, | because, sometimes, you wont. | I'm sorry to say, and sadly it's true... that bang-ups and hang-ups can happen to you. | You can get all hung up in a prickle-ly perch. And your gang will fly on, you'll be left in a lurch. | You'll come down from the lurch with an unpleasant bump, and the chances are, then, that you'll be in a slump....

29: & when you're in a slump, you're not in for much fun ... un-slumping yourself is not easily done

30: You will come to a place where the streets are not marked Some windows are lighted but mostly they're darked. A place you could sprain both your elbow and chin... Do you dare stay out? Do you dare go in? | How much can you lose? | How much can you win?

31: And if you go in, should you turn left or right... Or right-and-three-quarters, or, maybe, not quite? Or go around back and sneak in from behind? Simple it's not, I'm afraid you will find for a mind-maker-upper to make up his mind!

32: You can get so confused that you'll start in to race... Down long wiggled roads at a neck-breaking pace and grind on for miles across weirdish wild space, headed, I fear toward a most useless place. The waiting place... | ...for people just waiting waiting for a train to go... or a bus to come, or a plane to go, or the mail to come or the rain to go, or the phone to ring or the snow to snow Or waiting around for a Yes or a No Or waiting for their hair to grow. Everyone is just waiting. | Easter 2010

33: Waiting for the fish to bite, or for wind to fly a kite,or waiting for Friday night Or waiting, perhaps, for their uncle Jake, or a pot to boil, or a better break, or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants, or a wig with curls Or another chance. Everyone is just waiting. | No! That's not you! Somehow you'll escape all that waiting and staying You'll find the bright places where boom-bands are playing. With banners flip-flapping, once more you'll ride high, ready for anything under the sky. Ready because, you're that kind of guy!

34: The Gateway Clipper Fleet

35: Fall Foliage Cruise

36: Oh the places you'll go, there is fun to be done! There are points to be scored, there are games to be won! And the magical things you can do with that ball will make you the winning-est winner of all. Fame! You'll be famous as famous can be, with the whole wide world watching you win on TV. | The Pittsburgh Zoo

37: Except when they don't, because, sometimes, they won't. I'm afraid that some times you'll play lonely games too... Games you can't win ‘cause you'll play against you. All Alone! Whether you like it or not, alone will be something you'll be quite a lot. And when you're alone, there's a very good chance you'll meet things that scare you right out of your pants! There are some, down the road, between hither and yon, that can scare you so much you won't want to go on. | Pittsburgh Penguins

38: Orlando | Florida | But on you will go, though the weather be foul On you will go though your enemies prowl. On you will go though the Hakken-kraks howl Onward up many a frightening creek, though your arms may get sore and your sneakers may leak. On and on you will hike, and I know you'll hike far... and face up to your problems, whatever they are. | You'll get mixed up, of course, as you already know, You'll get mixed up with many strange birds as you go...

39: So be sure when you step, step with care and great tact and remember that life's a great balancing act. | Just never forget to be dexterous and deft And never mix up your right foot with your left!

43: Kid, you'll move mountains! So be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray or Mordecai, Ale, Van Allen, O’Shea You're off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, So get on your way! | And will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed! (98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed!)
