Too many genies and not enough lamps

There’ll be more new than old,
how that’s going to work
I will wait to be told.

we have to do the new
even if we don’t like change
and when we do the new
it’ll become old and we’re
used to that.

I guess we can’t tootle along
as if everything’s right
there are lots of things wrong,

so new is here to stay
it has had its day and
becomes old.
