Time's a wastin'
Don't you take your time, young man
Keep on drifting
Ain't no tellin' where you'll land

Run baby, run, run
Where you're running to and who you're running from
Some people may not understand
What it means to be a man, taking full command

'Cause we're livin' in a world that's oh, so strange
Boy, don't let your focus change
Taking out the demons in your range, hey

Livin' in a world that's oh, so fast
Gotta make your money last
Learn from your past, oh

Time's a wastin'
Don't you take your time, young man
Keep on drifting
Ain't no tellin' where you'll land

Sweet love and sunshine
If it's all in the air, then it's all on your mind
Breathe baby, come back to the world
Dig up all your pearls, teach the boys and girls, hey

Livin' in a world that's oh, so strange
Boy, don't let your focus change
Taking out the demons in your range, hey

Livin' in a world that's oh, so fast
Gotta make your money last
Learn from your past, hey

Oh, baby we need to smile
Oh, baby we need to smile
Oh, oh, baby we need to smile
Oh, oh, baby, baby we need to smile

'Cause time's a wastin
Don't you take your time, young man
Keep on drifting
Ain't no tellin' where you'll land

Oh, baby we need to smile
Oh, baby we need to smile
Oh

Time's a wastin'
Don't you take your time, young man
Keep on drifting
Ain't no tellin' where you'll land

Time's a wastin'
Ain't no tellin'
Take your time, young man

Ain't no tellin'
Ain't no tellin'
Ain't no tellin'
