You control

Hi, pleased to meet you, my name is Lloyd Dobler,
I'll get straight to the point, won't take too much time from ya.

I'm probably the youngest person you'll get advice from today,
and you may think that a guy my age wouldn't have anything to say,
but it's said that observation, not old age, brings wisdom,
and I observe every single life lesson I'm given.

I won't attempt tell you how to love or be loved,
because you get a different genie each time that lantern is rubbed.
But I will offer you advice on dealing with life,
its ups and its downs, its troubles and its strifes.

Now I'm sure you've had times when you've felt down or angry,
wanted to lash out, punch a wall and be manly,
but the question I pose now will offer you a plan B,
and maybe some peace and quiet for your friends and family:

How hard is it to decide to be in a good mood,
and then just be in a good mood?
That's all I have to say because it's a straight up fact,
You control your emotions, it's as simple as that.
