Chorus:
Oh the Time keeps ticking and the days keep rolling on by
Parents getting older, the kids getting grown oh and the days are rolling by 
Yeah the time – you know what they say, its flying, oh my
Today, precious baby – tomorrow, grown lady and the days are rolling by

Verse 1:
"Oh it all was yesterday!" – yeah that's what the old folks say.
Tell me did they live or were they dying? tell me did they know his grace?
Oh let's be honest, what have you accomplished in your couple of decades?
When we put your body in the grave, will we say you gave your best?
How many dreams will die with you?
How many of them will you take?
How many kisses will go missing?
How much love will go unmade?

Chorus:
Oh the Time keeps ticking and the days keep rolling on by
Parents getting older, the kids getting grown oh and the days are rolling by 
Yeah the time – you know what they say, its flying, oh my
Today, precious baby – tomorrow, grown lady and the days are rolling by

Verse 2:
I came alive the July night she met me on this side - ah
I was born again when she hit my arms
Soon she'll be holding me now
They said to cherish the day
Cuz she won't be no baby forever
Hmm, Daddy cherished the day
Now it's something special forever
Babys doing her thing
Oh she making it special
Oh she starring the scene
Oh the dream is progressing

Chorus:
Oh the Time keeps ticking and the days keep rolling on by
Parents getting older, the kids getting grown oh and the days are rolling by 
Yeah the time – you know what they say, its flying, oh my
Today, precious baby – tomorrow, grown lady and the days are rolling by

Verse 3:
Oh they were Superman and Wonder Woman back in the day
Ah - I hit 20, found out the hard way
Flesh and bones is all they is
Oh how the gravity ages.
Oh All the forcibly turned pages
So blessed it was them who raised me
No regrets in the chest
Oh now they grey on the head
Thinking of what is next
Contemplating the phases
But the time is the test

Chorus:
Oh the Time keeps ticking and the days keep rolling on by
Parents getting older, the kids getting grown oh and the days are rolling by 
Yeah the time – you know what they say, its flying, oh my
Today, precious baby – tomorrow, grown lady and the days are rolling by
