lyrics

A Million Years

All of a hurry, all of a rush
All of a flurry, ignore the crush
Time won't wait for any of us
And if we don't get it done – be a hell of a fuss

Oh really, oh truly, hanging by a slender thread
Oh really, oh truly, that's just a wind-up in our head

Act in haste repent at leisure
Take time to think take time to measure
Act in haste repent at leisure
Take time to think take time to measure

How much time to make a diamond, how much time from grains of sand
A million years to make a fine one we may need a helping hand

Why the hold-up, what's taking so long
Everybody in my way, everybody is wrong
There's places to be, there's thing to do
And I gotta have it done by this afternoon

Oh really, oh truly, hanging by a slender thread
Oh really, oh truly, that's just a wind-up in our head

Act in haste repent at leisure
Take time to think take time to measure
Act in haste repent at leisure
Take time to think take time to measure

How much time to make a diamond, how much time from grains of sand
A million years to make a fine one we may need a helping hand

(Arrange the carbon atoms
Into a lattice pattern
To make the whole thing happen
Wait a million years)
