Take It From Me

Oh Mirror Mirror on the wall

Why aren't you kind to me anymore

What have you done with my beauty

I always saw there before.

Hair I had the color of a dark night

You're now reflecting snowy white

And once smooth clear skin

What I'm now seeing is causing me fright.

Don't let Father Time fool you

Into believing your youth will never end

Enjoy this treasure while it's there

Take it from me_ keeping it_you can't win.
