Have you ever …..

Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round?

Or listened to the rain dripping on the ground?

Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight

Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You’d better slow down, don’t dance so fast.

Time is short. The music won’t last.

Do you run through each day on the fly?

When you ask, ‘how are you’, do you hear the reply?

When the day is done, do you lie in your bed

With the next 100 chores running through your head?

You’d better slow down, don’t dance so fast

Time is short, the music won’t last.

Ever told your child we’ll do it tomorrow?

And in your haste, not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch, let a good friendship die,

Cause you never had time to call and say hi?

You’d better slow down, don’t dance so fast

Time is short, the music won’t last.

When you run fast to get somewhere

You miss half the fun of getting there.

When you worry and hurry through your day

It’s like an unopened gift thrown away.

Life’s not a race, so take it slower.

Hear the  music before the song is over.
