Ah, the beat goes on
That same old song
Needs to be restrung
Hey, I’ve just begun
Oh snap, get a grip
It’s gonna be a long trip
Life has a two-fold meaning
We gotta keep singing
I feel the beat, it moves my feet
Don’t let the chinwag sag
It’s not cool when you brag
Be a dear, be sincere
This isn’t yesteryear
Don’t let words of ire
Fuel a senseless fire
Seek your inner soul
And let the social dice roll
Let’s Meet & Greet one another at the Tuesday Chatter Cafe
