“I'm not really dancing not dancing these days”
She says and looks at me with her wrinkly eyes
“I’m not really going out at night
I’ll rather stay home and watch my old tuna fish swim around and fly”

“I’m so very wasted so wasted tonight”
I say and watch her emptily with my tired eye
“These days are really killing me
I’d rather see your old tuna fish swim around
Does it really fly?”

Oh Time
Oh wasted Time
You just fly, Time
Don’t you take your time

Oh Time
Oh wasted Time
You go ahead and fly, Time
I feel like I’m wasting you, Time

“I spent forty months on judging my life”
I say and still think of how to find my future wife
“He’s in the freakish twenties” she thinks and smiles
“I will tell him all about the sunsets and the falling stars”

Oh Time
Oh wasted Time

“I wish I could skip these anxious hours”
I say and still think of how to build the tallest towers
She whispers, “There’s a time for everything”
And starts to sing about all the far out places she has been

Old woman
Oh old lady
How did you get there?
I would like to see all the beauty from here
