Just whatís the point of it all I
Can you make an hour last a day?
Ever smelled a flower before it bloomed?
Ever been to a party before you were groomed?
Have you eaten a meal before it was done?
Canít say I have; wouldnít be any fun!
Been ticketed for speeding; going
Slow down, take it easy, make your life last!
Ease up on the pedal, put on the brake.
Just slow it on down, For goodness sake!
So why such a hurry, all of the time?
Working faster; will you earn one more dime?
Ever see the morning before the sunshine?
Always out of bed before the clock strikes nine?
Donít be in a hurry, weíre all growing old.
Donít leave a recital before the story is told.
Slow down, take it easy, hear the birds sing.
Try and take notice of what life has to bring!
