Yolo is an ice cold glass of lemonade on a  summer day.

Yolo is listening to Drake, while baking a cake on Sunday.

Yolo is oh no, I’ve to got to go, I’m late.

Yolo is a Tweet, not a thought.

It’s the new leather skirt you bought.

It’s smile lines on an old dame.

A hair day that can’t be tamed.

A cosmopolitan.

A suburb, a ferry, a Metropolitan. 

Yolo is me, it’s you, it’s us.

Yolo is a taxi, a train, a bus.
