The dispute between a guarded, protected and defensive character on the one hand and a snappy
bullsy type on the other hand is the topic of this song.
Every character envies the other character: The timid one envies the brisk type. And the brisk type envies the careful character. For the mousy guy life is very uncertain and fragile. For him "life is a fragile thing" and he ponders about every decision he makes. The world is full of risks and he tries to insure everything.
In contrast the laddish man or woman doesn't even bother about the risks of life. He just walks on and swashbuckles everything. For him the world is full of adventures and interesting thrills.
