While I Still Got the Time
by Darius Rucker



Thirty-nine (39) candles burnt out on a cake
Each representin’ a million mistakes
The last one still burns, there’s a wish I can make
This time I’m getting’ it right
So I close my eyes and I take a deep breath
And I promise myself in the time I have left

I’m gonna work like I don’t need the money
I’m gonna laugh like I’m not afraid to cry
I’m gonna dance like nobody’s watchin’
I’m gonna love while I still got the time

Lovin’ me hasn’t been easy on you
I don’t know why, but I know you still do
It may be my day, but here’s a present for you
You’re lookin’ at your new man
He’s sincere and sober and faithful and kind
And he’s home when you need him and girl startin’ tonight

I’m gonna work like I don’t need the money
I’m gonna laugh like I’m not afraid to cry
I’m gonna dance like nobody’s watchin’
I’m gonna love while I still got the time

No more excuses and no more me doing things wrong
Life is too short, baby, I’ve wasted ours for too long
And baby from now on

I’m gonna work like I don’t need the money
I’m gonna laugh like I’m not afraid to cry
I’m gonna dance like nobody’s watchin’
I’m gonna love while I still got the time


I’m gonna work like I don’t need the money I know I am
I’m gonna laugh like I’m not afraid to cry laugh laugh laugh
I’m gonna dance like nobody’s watchin’I’m gonna dance I’m gonna dance
I’m gonna love while I still got the time
I’m gonna love while I still got the time
while I still got the time
