It can be "The Perfect Day" for you, if you stay away from the "Boys Game" and the "Crime Drama."  You too can be "Living with the Jetset" -- but stay away from those "Judo Intellectuals," always throwin' their weight around.  While we're "Living in America," you can "Do It Yourself" without fear of "Losing Control."

Just "Don't Cry"!
