Lyrics

The Time Does Fly

Written By: Nick Fugedi

Old man Gibson was 91 when he died
he had his wife and family by his side
and lying on his death bed with a twinkle in his eye he said how the time does fly
Jack left home on the fourth of July
To fight for his country and there he would die
and lying there beneath the fiery sky
he said how the time does fly

And this life keeps rolling on like a river rolls out to the sea
an old man dies and a child is born and life goes on accordingly
so I swear, I swear
that i wont let this life pass me by
cause i know, Lord I know
that the time does surely fly

Little Johnny loved to ride his bike all day
till a driver hit him broadside and took his life away
now standing next to his maker up in the sky he said
how the time does fly
Now all through history to the times of old
from ancient battles over land and gold
for every man who died im sure not one would deny
how the time does fly

And this life keeps rolling on like a river rolls out to the sea
an old man dies and a child is born and life goes on accordingly
so I swear, I swear
that I wont let this life pass me by
cause I know, Lord I know
that the time does surely fly
