lyrics

In the blink of an eye
Your life will pass you by,
It'll fit on the head of a pin,
Can you cram it all in?
Because you don't want to get to the dock
To find that your ship has sailed,
In the shake of a tail
The days slip by.
So get your ducks in a row,
Get your show on the road,
Hit the ground at a run
Find your moment
In the sun,
Live large, live life like a king,
It's sink or swim,
Give it your best shot,
One life is all you've got.
Because
In the blink of an eye
Your life will pass you by,
It'll fit on the head of a pin,
Can you cram it all in?
Because you don't want to get to the dock
To find that your ship has sailed,
In the shake of a tail
The days slip by.
When you croak
When you drop off the twig,
Pop your clogs, kick the bucket, bite the dust,
When you've breathed your last
And you're looking at the other side of the grass,
When you've shuffled off this mortal coil,
Sold the farm and called it a day,
I hope you kicked life’s butt
From the cradle to the grave
Because
In the blink of an eye
Your life will pass you by,
It'll fit on the head of a pin,
Can you cram it all in?
Because you don't want to get to the dock
To find that your ship has sailed,
In the shake of a tail
The days slip by.
