Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More

Last Sunday morning, the sunshine felt like rain.

Week before, they all seemed the same.

With the help of God and true friends, I come to realize

I still had two strong legs, and even wings to fly.

And oh I, ain’t wastin time no more

‘Cause time goes by like hurricanes, and faster things.

Lord, lord Miss Sally, why all your cryin’?

Been around here three long days, you’re lookin’ like you’re dyin’.

Just step yourself outside, and look up at the stars above

Go on downtown baby, find somebody to love.

Meanwhile I ain’t 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

You can’t let one precious day slip by.

Look inside yourself, and if you don’t see what you want,

Maybe sometimes then you 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.

Well, hear us now, we ain’t wastin’ time no more

‘Cause time goes by like hurricanes

Runnin’ after subway trains

Don’t forget the pouring rain.
