By: Joe Iconis
Sung by: JB Planko(Eric William Morris)
Solos: JB Planko(Eric William Morris)

The Guide To Success, is a song that never actually made it onto Smash, it was rejected by executives. The song plays out in the musical Hit List, following Nina Hope's big performance of Pretender at JB Planko's hip L.A. loft. It is JB giving Jesse some advise about how the business world works.

LyricsEdit

JB Planko
I love that you are loyal
I love that you got passion
I love that you take noble stands
Kid really I do, really I do

But loyal isn't business
Passion isn't prudent
You're not allowed to make demands
Kid really it's true, kid I'm telling you

You're much too young to know better
You're getting yourself in a mess
So before I send your death letter
I'll recite you the guide to success
Free of charge, here's the guide to success

Never say what you really feel
Why make a choice when it's safer just to make a deal
Stay away from what causes a stir or offence

Keep your heart silent don't dispute
And if it turns violent makes sure you know who to shoot
And eventually every relationship ends
So throw out your baby and murder your friends

And I think you need to think about what you're doing with your life
And I think you need to think about why everyone is gonna hate you
And I think you need to think about all these choices that you've made
Because you've gone too far, and done too much
And nobody is gonna touch you
No, nobody's gonna touch you ever again

So you've wielded your attack fist
And now you're on the black list
So tell me buddy was it worth it
Did it feel as good as you thought it would

Well go play in your sandbox, you and your little posse
We've got a bigger box to fill
With people who will... kill

So go and shout all about us
How we're cold and old and unfair
'Cuz we may not know what we're doing
But we're each of us a billionaire
So really kid we don't really care
And we've got some wisdom to share

Exploit everybody who helped you
Put all of your faith in swine
Kiss some ass, it'll pass and you'll be fine

Young man, exploit everybody who helped you
Put all of your faith in swine
Kiss some ass, it'll pass and you'll be fine

Young man, exploit everybody who helped you
Put all of your faith in swine
Kiss some ass, it'll pass and you'll be fine
Young man, fine, young man, fine, young man

Hey never say what you really feel
Why a choice when it's safer just to make a deal
Stay away from what causes a stir or offence

Keep your heart silent don't dispute
And if it turns violent makes sure you know who to shoot
And eventually every relationship ends
So slice off your balls and murder your friends
Ignore all your feelings and murder your friends
And don't be a baby and don't make a fuss
And hopefully one day you won't murder us
