You Might Find Yourself Wishing

My young friend if you've been listening

To some of the old folks

Telling anyone who'll listen

About how good it used to be.

And the next time something bad happens

Causing you to believe your life is a pain

You might find yourself wishing

You could step back in time

To those good old days.

If this happens please stop and remember

The life you have is a blessing

So accept the time you've been given

Because going back to another time

I'm sorry to say

Your chances are absolutely none.
