Hey Mister, where you going in such a hurry
Don't you think it's time you realized
There's a whole lot more to life than work and worry
All the sweetest things in life are free
And they're right before your eyes

You've got to stop and smell the roses
You've got to count your many blessings everyday
You're gonna find your way to heaven is a rough and rocky road
If you don't stop and smell the roses along the way

Before you went to work this morning in the city
Well, did you spent some time with your family
Did you kiss your wife and tell her that she's pretty
Did you take your children to your breast and love 'em tenderly

You've got to stop and smell the roses
You've got to count your many blessings everyday
You're gonna find your way to heaven is a rough and rocky road
If you don't stop and smell the roses along the way

Well, did you ever take a walk through the forest
Stop and dream a while among the trees
Well, you can look up through the leaves right straight to heaven
And you can almost hear the voice of God in each any every breeze

Well, you've got to stop and smell the roses
You've got to count your many blessings everyday
You're gonna find your way to heaven is a rough and rocky road
If you don't stop and smell the roses along the way

Oh, you've got to stop and smell the roses
You've got to count your many blessings everyday
You're gonna find your way to heaven is a rough and rocky road
If you don't stop and smell the roses along the way

Said, you've got to stop and smell the roses
