Lyrics

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 (CHORUS) 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 (CHORUS) 2X 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 (CHORUS) 2X to fade
