The old man said to me
Said, "Don't always take life so seriously
Play the flute and dance and sing your song"

Try and enjoy the here and now
The future will take care of itself somehow
The grass is never greener over there

And time will wear away the stone
Gets the hereditary bone

Don't try to live your life in one day
Don't go speed your time away
Don't try to live your life in one day
Don't go speed your time away

The old man said to me
Said, "You can't change the world single handedly
Raise a glass enjoy the scenery"

Pretend the water is champagne
And fill my glass again and again
While the wolves are gathering 'round your door

Time will wear away the stone
Gets the hereditary bone

Don't try to live your life in one day
Don't go speed your time away
And don't try to live your life in one day
And don't go speed your time away

Don't try to live your life in one day
Don't go speed your time away
Don't try to live your life in one day
Don't go speed your time away

The old man said to me
Said, "Don't always take life so seriously
Play the flute and dance and sing your song"

Try and enjoy the here and now
The future will take care of itself somehow
The grass is never greener over there

Time will wear away the stone
Gets the hereditary bone

I tried to live my life in one day
Don't go speed your time away
I bit off more than I can chew
Only so much you can do

Wolves are gathering 'round my door
Ask them in and invite some more
I tried to live my life in one day
Don't go speed your time away

Don't try to live your life in one day
Don't try to live your life in one day

Don't try to live your life in one day
Don't go speed your time away
Don't try to live your life in one day
Don't go speed your time away

Don't try to live your life in one day
Don't go speed your time away
Don't try to live your life in one day
Don't go speed your time away
