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, ainít wastin time no more
ícause time goes by like hurricanes, and faster things.
Lord, lord miss Sally, why all your cryiní?
Been around here three long days, youíre lookiní like youíre dyiní.
Just step yourself outside, and look up at the stars above
Go on downtown baby, find somebody to love.
Meanwhile I ainít wastiní time no more
ícause time goes by like pouring rain, and much faster things.
You donít need no gypsy to tell you why
You canít let one precious day slip by.
Look inside yourself, and if you donít see what you want,
Maybe sometimes then you donít,
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, leaviní us alone.
Weíll raise our children in the peaceful way we can,
Itís up to you and me brother
To try and try again.
Well, hear us now, we ainít wastiní time no more
ícause time goes by like hurricanes
Runniní after subway trains
Donít forget the pouring rain.
