lyrics

Time flies, don't you know?
The hours they slip away
Tempus fugit, and it sure ain't slow
So make the most and seize the day

Each new candle on my birthday cake
Accelerates my mind
Time can give, but it sure can take
So make the most of what you find... Or time will rob you blind!

Tempus fugit, so you better use it
A tempest's brewing, but you ain't dead yet
Tempus fugit, so you better use it
'Cause time and tide wait for no man

Live every hour of your numbered days
From the cradle to the grave
From birth to death and in between
Old Father Time is all too keen
To lead your souls, astray

Yellowed vellum curls
And gives under my quill
But by the peace of these pages
May my beating heart be still
And my hand be ever steady
'Til iron be my will
Yes, my hand be ever steady
'Til iron be my will

Tempus fugit, so you better use it
A tempest's brewing, but you ain't dead yet
Tempus fugit, so you better use it
'Cause time and tide wait for no man
wait for no man
wait for no man

Woah oh time flies (time flies x4)
From the night you're born 'til the day you die
To Old Father Time, we all are slaves (tick tock x7)
From the cradle, from the very cradle where your Mama laid you, to the grave (in to the grave, ashes to ashes and dust to dust)

Tempus fugit, so you better use it
A tempest's brewing, but you ain't dead yet
Tempus fugit, so you better use it
'Cause time and tide wait for no man
Wait for no man
Wait for no man
