Have you ever watched kids   On a merry-go-round
  Or listened to the rain           Slapping on the ground?
  Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?
  You better slow down   Don't dance so fast
     Time is short     The music won't last.
                   Do you run through each day on the fly
              When you ask "How are you?"         Do you hear the reply?
              When the day is done,
        Do you lie in your bed
          With the next hundred chores
        Running through your head?
              You'd better slow down
        Don't dance so fast
                      Time is short         The music won't last
     Ever told your child,
  We'll do it tomorrow
           And in your haste, not see his sorrow?
 Ever lost touch,
  Let a good friendship die
 'Cause you never had time
  To call and say "Hi"?
You'd better slow down
Don't dance so fast
   Time is short
The music won't last.
  When you run so fast to get somewhere
You miss half the fun of getting there.
                                                                                  When you worry and hurry through your day,
                                                                                       It is like an unopened gift....
                                                                                                  Thrown away...                                               Life is not a race.
                                                                                          Do take it slower
