Last Sunday morning, the sunshine felt like rain.
The week before, they all seemed the same.
With the help of God and true friends, I've come to realize,
I still have two strong legs, and even wings to fly.

So I, ain't a-wastin time no more.
Cause time goes by like hurricanes, and faster things.

Well, Lord, Lord, Miss Sally, why all your cryin'?
Been around here three long days, lookin' like we're dyin'.
Go step yourself outside, and look up at the stars above,
And go on downtown, baby, find somebody to love.

Meanwhile, I ain't a-wastin' time no more.
Cause time goes by like pouring rain, and much faster things.

You don't need no gypsy to tell you why,
Ya can't let one precious day to slip by.
Well, look inside yourself, and if you don't see what you want,
Maybe sometimes then ya don't,
But, leave your mind alone and just get high.

Well, by and by, way after many years have gone,
And all the war freaks die off, leavin' us alone.
We'll raise our children, in the peaceful way we can,
It's up to you and me brother,
To try and try again.

So, hear us now, we ain't wastin' time no more.
Cause time rolls by like hurricanes.
Runnin' after the subway train.
Don't forget the pourin' rain.
