If I had money

And you were my girl

Lord you’d be wearing

Diamond and pearl.


But I ain’t got no money

Not even a dime

And all I can give you

Is my precious time.


Time is forever

And time it is brief

Time is a healer

And time is a thief


So walk in the garden

And come take my hand;

Well spent the cost

Of each grain of sand.
