Time marches on
and waites for no one
and you must pay the fiddler
when the music is done.

Yes time marches on
it waits for no man
and you must pay the fiddler
if you're not in the band.

And when the music stops
and the Conductor takes a bow
dont just look around and ask
what do I do now?

No! do not let that music stop
clap your hands and stomp the floor
and make that conductor play for you
one more encore!
Bob Mitchum
