TAKE TIME

featuring VanDeca
Imagine a large number of expressions about time, cleverly strung together into a “story”, and set to toe-tapping music – what can be more fun?? This delightful composition was commissioned by the BC Choral Federation for Senior’s Chorfest 2003.

LYRICS

Take time by the hand. Try to make Time understand.
Tell Time to skip a beat. Help Time put up his feet.

Take time, don’t let him go
It’s high Time you let time know.
Make Time stop passing by.
You know how Time likes to fly.

Time is fickle, He likes to slip away 
when he thinks your back is turned.
Slip away before you have time to say “One moment please”.

Take time, make him relax, smile and stop him in his tracks.
Stop time – don’t be unkind – teach Time how to unwind

If you have a brief moment, I’d just like to say that I’m 
finding things go better taking life one day at a time.

Time, spin him around.
Take his arm and pin him down.
Free time –  he’s yours to spend.
Time to make him your friend.

One more time

Time is fickle, He likes to slip away 
when he thinks your back is turned.
slip away before you have time to say “One moment please”.

Take time, pull off his shoes 
Do it now – no time to lose
It’s time, take it from me
Have time over for tea

Don’t be a time-keeper, he’ll never listen to a word you say.
If he should balk, just clean his clock
Don’t ever let him get in your way

Take it easy, take your time.

Help Time put up his feet,
Take Time out on a date.
Take time off for a walk.
Take time up on a chat
Save some time for a friend
Just take your time.

Take time
