Start Living (Alabama)

He just can't wait to graduate He's marking time and counting days He'll toss that cap and watch that tassel fly So he can start living Yeah, finally start living 'Cause he's got big plans And he'll have time on his hands To start living Before he knows ten years are gone A dead-end job, a mortgage loan He wonders where the chances passed him by To really start living Yeah he wants to start living And soon he's sure He can finally afford To start living He'll read more books He'll make more love He'll talk more to the man above He'll watch the sunset in the west And visit Mexico He'll learn to cook, he'll play some ball He'll write that book, he'll make that call He'll take the time Some other time Someday he'll do it all Well sittin' in the barber chair He sees the silver in his hair Those golden years are comin' right behind And then he'll start living He'll really start living Yeah he feels tired Ah, but soon he'll retire And start living He'll read more books He'll make more love He'll talk more to the man above He'll watch the sunset in the west And visit Mexico He'll learn to cook, he'll play some ball He'll write that book, he'll make that call He'll take the time Some other time Someday he'll do it all Well the doctor says, I've got bad news Afraid there's nothing we can do And all at once the tears are in his eys He'll never start living Never really start living Yeah he had big plans But there's no time on his hands To start living When he sees the pearly gates He'll really start living
