the time just slips on by~by Joe Wilson


 

 

the time just slips on by

Tick tock, tick tock, the time just slips on by
I sit here writing at my desk and feel there’s much to say
But does it make a difference, I ponder that last thought
Reflecting if in recent times my advice has e’er been sought.

Tick tock, tick tock, who knows what is our worth
I surely don’t but I know yet, each one is not worth less
The ones with lots, the ones with nought, and the rest of us in between
Should be sharing of our bounty, for less is too obscene.

Tick tock, tick tock, the one thing that you’ll learn
Is that when your life is weighed up the money doesn’t count
There is one and only one thing that doesn’t count for nought
It’s whether in your time on earth your friendship has been sought.
