When something's given precedence,
It’s time that you must make.
When you need to do your very best,
It’s time that you must take.
When you’re doing nothing special
You could say it’s time you waste.
You can do so many things with it
But time you cannot taste.
When you're really very busy,
You speak of time you use.
If you mess around and waste it,
Then look at the time you lose!
Time resembles money when we
Speak of time we spend.
It’s something we can’t give away
And certainly can’t lend.
“Tempo’s” time in melody
When you clap your hands.
You can’t eat time yet beat it
If you’re leader of the band.
Time’s a gift that’s freely given;
When used, can’t be replaced,
So use your time quite prudently.
Don’t let it go to waste.
