So don't be dumb
Don't trust anyone
Cause you only live once
The satirical nature of the song is to take aim at the younger generation where over the last year the term “YOLO” or “You Only Live Once” has been overused to the point where it has become cringe worthy. Example; (The stupid meme included)
The acronym came to rise when Toronto native Drake used it in his song The Motto. The intent of the song/lyric was to give young people inspiration to live their life the way they wanted to. Alas, the generation is now using it as an excuse to do dangerous, daring and ratchet acts.
