Keith Sykes

Chorus:
It's easy to see that we've just a very short time
So why don't we just go to the hill and climb
We'll go up just as high as John T. Booker got low
Yeah, singin' the songs that don't rhyme
Carryin' those pennies that do shine
Laughin' at the minutes that fall behind, in a very short time

Yeah, a tadpole's cuter than a topwater ever could be
And I betcha neither one ever had a lifeguard like me
Ain't nobody drowned since I got here, I been lookin' after tadpoles
Watchin' their legs that will grow, wonderin' where they're gonna go
In a very short time

Well, it's easy to see that, we've just a very short time
Yeah, nobody thinks about it until it's very far behind

Then they got to know where every second has gone
They keep singin' them songs that do rhyme
Carryin' those pennies that refuse to shine
Cryin' for the minutes that fell behind in a very short time

Chorus
