Drink and be merry for tomorrow never comes!
“Grab, oh grab the moment as it comes!
Spend, oh spend all you’ve got lest the
Morrow never comes! Dance oh dance,
Grab oh grab the moment as it comes!
Enjoy for the morrow might never dawn!
Drink, oh drink to never end the time
(And the present moment slips away).
Enjoy for the morrow might never dawn!”
For so teaches you the present times,
That to savour each breath one takes
As though one of the last one for ages
Might be the best way to live our lives!
“Spend, oh spend a one night stand!”
For so, you never did value what
Life does teach, of relations to last and
Love, kindness, sympathy and care!
And so advises me a friend of mine,
“Live for the moment, live to the fullest,”
For so does he live just for the moment-
True foot-soldier of the carpe-diem is he!
But I, the stubborn, old timer would rather
Wait for the morrow to dawn, for me, I’d
Rather grab another moment, if it comes,
Than waste a life in a puff of smoke!
So, wait oh, wait !Dear friend of mine, for who
Does know what the dawn might bring, as
You sigh of a life of smoke, so to drown in
Glass of wine as the dawn does smile of hope!
Tarry and wait, leave some for later, for the morrow does dawn!
