Time has a funny way
Of making a person think
A chance to smell the roses
And flush out things that stink

Too much time and you go crazy
Too little and nothing gets done
But if you manage to get it right
There’s plenty for work and fun

Life has been a journey
For me as I’m sure for you
And the only things I’ve found that matter
Are the things you love to do

For if you spend your time
Doing as others would have you do
You’ll find you’ve spent your life
Doing nothing you wanted to

So take the time, do what you want
Worry less what others think
Its time to smell the roses
And flush out things that stink
