Slow down you crazy child
You're so ambitious for a juvenile
But then if you're so smart
Then tell me why are you still so afraid?
Mmm

Where's the fire? What's the hurry about?
You better cool it off before you burn it out
You've got so much to do
And only so many hours in a day,

But you know that when the truth is told
That you can get what you want or you can just get old
You're gonna kick off before you even get half way through, mmm
When will you realise, Vienna waits for you

Slow down, you're doing fine
You can't be everything you wanna be before your time
Although it's so romantic on the borderline tonight, tonight

Too bad, but it's the life you lead
You're so ahead of yourself that you forget what you need
Though you can see when you're wrong
You know you can't always see when you're right, you're right

You've got your passion and you got your pride
But don't you know that only fools are satisfied
Dream on, but don't imagine they'll all come true, ooh
When will you realise Vienna waits for you?

Slow down you crazy child
And take the phone off the hook and disappear for a while
It's alright, you can afford to lose a day or two, oooh
When will you realise Vienna waits for you?

And you know that when the truth is told
That you can get what you want or you can just get old
You're gonna kick off before you even get half way through ooh
Why don't you realise Vienna waits for you?
When will you realise Vienna waits for you?
Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm
