Two cheers for the level-headed Who make the world go 'round Please keep your voices down Restrain your celebration So much for the revolution Long live the tried and true One day it comes to you A blinding revelation: Two cheers for moderation! So calm, so cool So understated Let reason rule – Well modulated So much for the best intentions So much for the higher ground Show up and settle down: Your only true salvation Let us not swerve Let us not wither They also serve Who stand and dither Lights out on the Grand Illusion This is your brave new world! Please keep those banners furled Maintain your concentration Two cheers for moderation! Hip-hip hooray! Hip-hip hooray!
