lyrics

When I retire, I will be, completely free,
And where I go, you’ll come with me.
A clear blue sky, is overhead, we act like we’re dead.
So let’s go out, and live instead.
I want more life, time to ourselves, and no one else,
We have our health, we have our wealth.
We work so hard, for so damn long, there’s nothing wrong,
If we leave the throng, and move along.

<chorus> We won’t always have it this good.
Let’s enjoy it while we can.
Gather our rosebuds while we may.
Hold a fistful of sand.

My good time, in the end, talk with a friend,
Be sanguine, now and then.
As time goes by, friends die, and we realize,
By and by, it’s you and I.
Losing my, abilities, without much ease,
I conjure these, lost memories.
Now say goodbye, I letting slip, loosen my grip,
I’m at the start, of my final trip.

<chorus> We won’t always have it this good.
Let’s enjoy it while we can.
Gather our rosebuds while we may.
Hold a fistful of sand.

Jason Deeble Connecticut

I'm a middle school math teacher, author/illustrator, and insufferable tea snob. I used to play drums in a cover band but we sort of fell apart. After that, I couldn't find anyone to make music with me anymore so I went off and did my own thing. Thanks very much for checking out my biography. I hope you enjoy my music. ... more
