Mordechai Ben David - Take The Time lyrics

Listen and you’ll learn my son
for you the world has just begun
still before you know it
you may turn around see that life has passed you by
hear and heed the things I say
think about them everyday
make of every minute what you see when you begin it or it passes by

Make the time for things that count
cherish the friends that you find
think three times before you shout
always remember to be kind
Listen close when children speak
treasure the things that they know
the toys and tears of younger years
carry the wisdom when they go

Buddy can you spare a dime
sorry but I ain’t got time
Daddy can you study please
sorry son but don’t you see I cant today
little things that come and go
slip away before we know
the handles of the clock advance
and we who beg for second chances must obey

Take the time to do things right
always believe what you say
ask yourself each morning and night
who am I closer with today

Speak to Hashem with an open heart
there isn’t a shoulder so wide
there’s never been a better time to start
and nothing more foolish than your pride.

Listen and you’ll learn my son
for you the world has just begun
still before you know it
you may turn around see that life has passed you by
Every moment is so dear
time just doesn’t stop to care
swiftly as a shadow
in a moment as we turn around it passes by

So take your time, do things right
always believe what you say
ask yourself each morning and night
who am I closer with today
Speak to Hashem with an open heart
there isn’t a shoulder so wide
there’s never been a better time to start
and nothing more foolish than your pride.
