Don't get ahead of yourself little girl, a wise woman once said
She had a flower in her hair and smoked a cigarette
I had to turn my head

You've got the world at your feet, the wise woman said to me
Stop counting into the future of your years
Live for right now, that's all we really know anyhow
Do a favor to yourself, do away with your fears

I saw the lines on her face from experience and heartache
Wise woman knew the score and I wanted to know more
With the saddest smile I'd seen in my whole life
This to me she advised

The journey's incomplete without a cause, so find one
When you do, hold it tight
Changing your mind means you didn't believe and wasted time
How about do a favor to yourself, do away with doubt

Live for right now, that's all we really know anyhow
Do a favor to yourself, do away with fear and doubt

What are you rush in for? Afraid of getting older
All the while, not getting any younger

Father time thinks you're a fool
That's why you've gotta play it cool
Time's only got one rule and that's keep tickin'
Keep tickin', tickin'
Father time's got it out for you
That's why you gotta play it cool
Time's only got one rule and that's keep tickin'
Keep tickin', tickin'
