Time's a wastin'
Keep on driftin' and

Where you runnin' to?
Some people may not understand
What it means to be a man
'Cause we're...

Takin' out the demons in your range, hey
Gotta make your money last
Learn from the past, oh
Don't you take your time young man

Sweet love and sunshine
Then it's all on your mind
Breathe baby
Dig up all your pearls

Boy don't let your focus change
Livin' in a world that's oh so fast
Gotta make your money last
Oh baby we need to smile (x4)

Keep on driftin' and
Oh baby we need to smile (x4)
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Don't you take your time young man

Ain't no tellin'
