Penny arcades

If you don’t get it
don’t sweat it
there’ll be time later on
to write the words to your song,

life may be short and not so neat
but keep yourself as young and sweet
as you can,

find a man if that’s your thing
listen to his words, but sing
to your own tune,

Sometime when the evening comes
the sunsets go and
the morning’s run away from you,
you’ll get it then.
