Lyrics

The day goes by so quickly here.
Perhaps we’re doing too much.
The day goes by so quickly here.
I think the daylight should stop.

It’s moving too fast.
I thought it was summer.
It’s moving too fast.
Why does it run?

The day goes by so quickly here.
The day it turns to night so fast.
The day goes by so quickly here.
And then it will be done at last.

Have you thought of slowing down?
Doing fewer things?
Have you thought of slowing down?
Slowing down to sing.

The day goes by so quickly here.
I hardly have a chance.
The day goes by so quickly here.
I havn’t been able to dance.

Sometimes I sing and sometimes I dance
and sometimes I do both at once.
But! The day goes by so quickly here
that I’ve done neither one.

Perhaps someday things will slow down.
But I do not know when.
Perhaps some day things will be found
to make the day slow again.
