Where has the summer gone And all the songs The laughter and all the cynical remarks The crazy dreams and magazines In the bin in the memory Where it belongs And moving on There is a better life There are better times ahead So get out of bed Mend your head and heart Be in the moment The runners are running The exhibitions are opening The dance of life We live in style September, October Things are going to happen Lets make some good choices And save a bit money The cash flow is flowing So pass it around LIVE each week Make it the best And get plenty of rest Don't let the world Beat you up And spoil your thinking With drugs and drinking KENNETH MOOD
