(With only a little more time)
Every once in a while there's someone whose life is like a comet flashin' across the sky
Men of great talent with things to tell us
And it seems like all too soon those kinds seem to die
Now Stephen Foster was one of these gifted people
He's down to earth songs turned the whole world on
But then like most people who are sent here on a mission
All too soon young Stephen was gone
A little more time a little more time oh the songs he might have wrote
Tender words and pretty notes with only a little more time
Another man I feel was sent here on a mission was John F Kennedy
A man loved and respected by I guess just about everyone
And I suppose we were all guilty of takin' him for granted
His love for humanity and the many fine things that he done
Now he wanted this to be a better world but all too soon this great man died
And as we gathered around our radios that afternoon
The whole world stopped a little while and it cried
A little more time a little more time so much to do so little done
But the victory's he might have won with only a little more time
And looking back down the pages of history
The greatest influence for good there ever was Jesus
And his spite of all the obstacles in his path
Look at the legacy of hope that you gave us
And as I look around me at those who live by his teachings
And bless the day of his birth
I can't help but feel this would be a whole lot better world
If he could have spent a little more time on this earth
A little more time a little more time
Peace on earth might really be today if only he had just had a little more time
