(lyrics by James Seals; music by James Seals & Dash Crofts, 1969)
From the albums YEAR OF SUNDAY (1972), SUDAN VILLAGE (1976) and TODAY (1998).

This ol' world's a-gettin' heavy, these old times are gettin' hard.
You might see a-somethin' happen if you look out in your yard.
You might see the old world vanish, you might see the sun go down.
You must give yourself a lesson, stop and turn yourself around.

It's gotta be soon. So let it cool awhile.
Slow down, easy style
And you'll be doin' alright, 'cause you love.

This ol' world it needs a-paintin', these old walls are gettin' thin.
There's a lot that needs a-fixin', you can help us all begin.
We'll remove the rust and tarnish from the hearts of everyone.
Hand in hand we'll stand together, take a look at what we've done.

It's gotta be soon. So let it cool awhile.
Slow down, easy style
And you'll be doin' alright, 'cause you love.

The ol' world's a-gettin' heavy, these old times are gettin' hard.
You might see a-somethin' happen if you look out in your yard.
You might see the old world vanish, you might see the sun go down.
You must give yourself a lesson, stop and turn yourself around.

It's gotta be soon. So let it cool awhile.
Slow down, easy style
And you'll be doin' alright, 'cause you love.
