Listen, to the wisdom of the ages
Listen, to the words of many sages

Live each day, as if it were your last
It’s written in the stars, your destiny is cast
And that hourglass, runs too fast no doubt
For the sands of time are running out

Listen, to the wisdom of the ages
These words, can be found in history’s pages

Live each day, for happiness can’t wait
And love while you may, but heed the hand of fate
If the finger points, it’s too late no doubt
For the sands of time, are running out
But the man who turns, and escapes somehow

Is the wisest of men
And to such a man, I’d bow
