The past shouldn’t have happened, so some people say.
Yeah, well, what about today?
Like, what’s happening man, as the hippies say?
Is everything okay?
We can do nothing about the past but we can work now.
If we bother, anyhow.
If we know the past is wrong what is our present song?
Why can’t we get along?
The past is more or less the same as now, people made mistakes, and how.
And we make them now.
Today will be the past before you know it, who will blame you then?
The time we can change is now, the past is over anyhow.
Forget the past, do not relive it.
If he did you wrong, forgive it.
Who is perfect, who’s all wrong, is what aboutery your song?
Bear no grudge, do not complain or we forever live in pain.
A child knows happiness is best.
I lay down my pen, I take a rest.
Listen to the child you were.
Let us not kill him or her.
I say what everybody knows.
You say shut up, I suppose.
So on and on it goes.
Stepping on each other’s toes.
Do you want war to end?
In that case I am your friend.
Make do and mend.
