Time for living, time for giving
No time for making up
A monster to sell
Time for living, time for giving
No time for breaking out a lie to tell

Ain't nobody got to spell it for me
Ain't nobody got to yell, I can see
Ain't nobody got the pain, I can hear
But if I have to, I will yell in your ear

Time for living, time for giving
No time for running over anyone
Time for living, time for giving
No time for messing, time for fun

Ain't nobody got to spell it for me
Ain't nobody got to yell, I can see
Ain't nobody got the pain, I can hear
Don't you, don't you, don't you
Yell in my ear

Time for changing, rearranging
No time for peace?
Rearranging?
Might not give a damn

Ain't nobody got to spell it for me
Ain't nobody got to yell, I can see
Ain't nobody got the pain, I can hear
Don't you yell in my ear

Time for changing, rearranging
Time for changing, rearranging
Time for changing, rearranging
Time for changing, rearranging

Time, rearranging
Time, rearranging, yeah
Time for changing, rearranging
Time for changing, rearranging

    Re: "no time for peace? "

    I believe these lines to be:

    Time for changing, rearranging
    No time for peeps, to pass the buck
