Take it Slow and Easy as you Go

Running like the devil up a staircase going down
Ain’t ever gonna get you to the top
Cashing ‘round in circles gets you back to where you were
So kick back and take the escalator up
There ain’t no point pretending that it’s first to the finish line
With a tortoise spraying champagne on the hare he left behind

Take it slow and easy as you go
Don’t fret about the ways and means
The things you can’t control
Stop, look and listen
Catch what you’ve been missing
You only get one trip down the road
Take it slow and easy as you go

Peeking through locked windows for a glimpse at what’s inside
Won’t ever give your eyes a chance to see
The tin man and the scarecrow didn’t catch a red-eye flight to Oz
But the wizard sat there waiting just the same
There ain’t no point pretending that it’s first to the finish line
With a tortoise spraying champagne on the hare he left behind

Take it slow and easy as you go
Don’t fret about the ways and means
The things you can’t control
Stop, look and listen
Catch what you’ve been missing
You only get one trip down the road
Take it slow and easy as you go

The shepherd wasn’t looking so the young ram told his dad
Let’s run down and make a young lamb fall
Dad said son let’s take our time, stop and smell the flowers some
And save ourselves the strength to take ‘em all
There ain’t no point pretending it’s first to the finish line
With a tortoise spraying champagne on the hare he left behind

Take it slow and easy as you go
Don’t fret about the ways and means
The things you can’t control
Stop, look and listen
Catch what you’ve been missing
You only get one trip down the road
Take it slow and easy as you go
