Aint wastin no more time

Last Sunday mornin’ … the sunshine felt like rain
Week before … they all … seemed the same
With the help of God and true friends … I come to realize
I still had two strong legs … and even wings to fly

And oh I … ain't-a wastin’ time no more
'Cause time goes by like … hurricanes … and faster things

Lord, lord Miss Sally … why … all your cryin’?
Been around here three long days-uh … you lookin' like you're dyin'
Just step yourself outside and look up at the stars above
Go on downtown baby … find somebody to love

Meanwhile I … ain't-a wastin' time no more
'Cause time goes by like … pouring rain … and much faster things

You don't need no gypsy to tell you why
You can't let one precious day slip by
But look inside yourself … and if you don't see what you want
Maybe sometimes then you don't
But leave your mind alone and just get high … oh, yessuh

Well by and by way after … many years have gone
And all the war freaks die off … leavin' us alone
We'll raise our children in the peaceful way we can
It's up to you and me brother
To try and try again

Well, hear us now … we ain't wastin' time no more
'Cause time goes by like … hurricanes
Runnin' after subway trains
Don't forget the pouring rain
