Slow Dance

Have you ever watched kids on a merry -go -round?
Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight?
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You'd better slow down
Don't dance so fast
Time is short,
The music won't last.

Do you run through each day on the fly?
When you ask, "How are you?" do you hear the reply?
When the day is done, do you lie in your bed
With the next hundred chores running through your head?

You'd better slow down
Don't dance so fast
Time is short,
The music won't last.

Ever told your child, "We'll do it tomorrow?"
And, in your haste, not seen his sorrow?
Ever lost touch, let a good friendship die?
'Cause you never had time to call and say "Hi?"

You'd better slow down
Don't dance so fast
Time is short,
The music won't last

When you run so fast to get somewhere,
You miss half the fun of getting there.
When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift...thrown away....

LIFE IS NOT A RACE
DO TAKE IT SLOWER,
HEAR THE MUSIC
BEFORE THE SONG IS OVER.
