Where are you walking, I've seen you walking
Have you been there before?
Walk down your doorsteps, you'll take some more steps
What did you take them for?
There's a private in my boat and he wears
Pins instead of medals on his coats

There's a chicken in my nest and she won't
Lay until, I've given her my best
At her request she asks for nothing
You get nothing in return
If you're nice she'll bring you water
If she don't then you will burn

You go through changes, it may seem stranges
Is this what you're put here for?
You think you're happy and you are happy
That's what you're happy for
There's a man who can't decide if he should
Fight for what his father thinks is right

There are people wearing frowns who'll screw you up
But they would rather screw you down
At my request I ask for nothing
You get nothing in return
If you're nice she'll bring me water
If you don't then I will burn

One, two, three, four

This is the time and life that I am living
You'll face each day with a smile
For the time that I've been given's such a little while
And the things that I must do consist of more than style
There are places that I am going

This is the only thing that I am sure of
And that's all that lives is gonna die
And there'll always be some people here to wonder why?
And for every happy hello, there will be goodbye
There'll be time for you to put yourself on

Everything I've seen needs rearranging
And for anyone who thinks it's strange
Then you should be the first to want to make this change
And for anyone who thinks that life is just a game
Do you like the part you're playing

I see your picture, it's in the same old frame
We meet again
You look so lovely, you with the same old smile
Stay for a while
I need you so, oh, oh, oh, oh
And if you take it easy
I'm still teething', I wanna love you, but
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

This is the time and life that I am living
You'll face each day with a smile
For the time that I've been given's such a little while
And the things that I must do consist of more than style
There are places that I am going

This is the time, this is the time
It is time
Time
Time
Time
