You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.

"You can steer yourself any
direction you choose."

You're on your own.
And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who'll
decide where to go.

You'll look up and down streets.  Look 'em over with care.  About some you will say, "I don't choose to go there."
With your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet, you're too smart to go down any not-so-good street.
And you may not find any you'll want to go down.  In that case, of course, you'll head straight out of town.
