(words & music by giant - baum - kaye)Listen, to the wisdom of the agesListen, to the words of many sagesLive each day, as if it were your lastIt’s written in the stars, your destiny is castAnd that hourglass, runs too fast no doubtFor the sands of time are running outListen, to the wisdom of the agesThese words, can be found in history’s pagesLive each day, for happiness can’t waitAnd love while you may, but heed the hand of fateIf the finger points, it’s too late no doubtFor the sands of time, are running outBut the man who turns, and escapes somehowIs the wisest of menAnd to such a man, I’d bow
