Well, maybe I'm just cynical,
Peut-être suis-je juste cynique
03:08
and all these words are lies,

03:18
But caution makes you hesitate,
Mais la prudence te fait hésiter
03:23
and hesitate you're lost,
et si tu hésites, tu es perdu,
03:27
so take your opportunities
alors saisis les opportunités
03:31
and never count the cost.
