"THE WORLD HASN'T GOT THAT MUCH TIME"

Verse 1
There are lots of people
Putting off for today,
What they think can be done tomorrow,
But it doesn't work that way!-
There are lots of people
Living on borrowed time,
But there isn't a way to pay it back
When they reach the end of the line!-

Chorus 1
You say you've got all of the time in the world?
You haven't yet reached your prime?-
You say you've got all of the time in the world?
But the world hasn't got that much time!

[Unison Riff on A] -

Verse 2
You've been living it up in your good times.
You've listened to the fiddler play.
You've been dancing to his music,
And now you've gotta pay!-
All your friends are getting older,
Some of them have come and gone.
You couldn't imagine it'd happenin' to you,
But your time won't be long!-

Chorus 2
You say you've got all of the time in the world?
You haven't yet reached your prime?-
You say you've got all of the time in the world?
But the world hasn't got that much time!

Lead break: --
[Riff on Em] [No time, no time, no time, no time.]

Verse 3
You say you'll change when you're ready.
You won't be ready if you don't change soon!
Lend an ear to these words that I'm singing
While there's time to hear this tune.-
You're working so hard to make it,
To live up to the guy next door,
But it could all be gone in a moment,
So what are you living for?

Chorus 3
You say you've got all of the time in the world?
You haven't yet reached your prime?
You say you've got all of the time in the world?
But the world hasn't got that much time!

Chorus 4
You say you've got all the time in the world? --
You say you've got all of the time in the world?
But the world hasn't got that much time!
