Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round
Or listened to the rain.

Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight
Or gazed at the sun into the fading light.

You 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 wait for the reply>

When the day is done, do you lie in your bed
With the next hundred chores running through your head.

You 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 seen his sorrow.

Ever lost touch, let a good friendship die
Because you never had time to call and say, "Hi".

You better slow down, don't dance so fast
Time is short, the music won't last.

When you run so fast to get somewhere
You miss half the fun of getting there.

When you worry and hurry through the day
It'd like an unopened gift thrown away.

Life is not a race, so take it slower
Hear the music, before the song is over.
