    Lyrics

    (S.D.Jones-A.Powers)

    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 eyes
    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...
