They say time flies when you're having fun,
So I must be having a ball!
Seems from the rise to the setting of the sun
I've completed nothing at all.
I get up as early as I can,
And take care of so many things.
The hourglass runs out of sand.
Another bird on that bird clock sings!
Just when I get deep into my work
The phone begins to ring.
I don't intend to stop or shirk...
Then I hear an e-mail ding!
By the end of the day there's all this dust
I intended to have gone by noon.
I meant well, but then I just
Close the door and leave the room.
But in the day I had some laughs
And sure got deep into that book!
Maybe I DID the work in halfs.
Perhaps there were too many breaks I took!
Yet life is meant to be lived.
Life really is such a joy.
I'd probably do better if I would give
Away some of these distracting toys!
Tomorrow I'll probably get more done,
Even if I don't get to it all.
And find time to have a lot of fun,
'Cause time flies and I'm having a ball!
