SLOW DANCE
Have you ever watched the kids on a merry go
round?
Or listened to the rain slapping 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 hundred chores in 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 never see his sorrow?
Ever lost touch and 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 so fast to get somewhere,
do you miss half the fun of getting there?
When you worry and hurry through each day,
is it like an unopened gift thrown away?

Life is not a race
Do take it slower
Hear the music
Before the song is over
