Who can turn back the hands of the clock?
There’s none that I ever have known.
Now that you are young and strong,
And with energy and vitality bustle;
And thus can run and skip;
Do what you can do
For soon there’s
nothing you will be able to do;
For time is running out fast for you.
Your bones do get weaker by the day;
Your muscles equally weak as well;
Your energy will soon be gone.
Do then what you can do.
So that time may not
Catch up with you,
Do it now.
