"Time's A Wastin" as written by and Mizell/badu/mizell/young....
Time's a wastin'
Don't you take your time young man
Keep on driftin' and
Ain't no tellin' where you'll land

Run baby, run, run
Where you runnin' to?
And who you runnin' from?
Some people may not understand

What it means to be a man
Takin' full command
'Cause we're...
Livin' in a world that's oh so strange

Boy don't let your focus change
Takin' out the demons in your range, hey
Livin' in a world that's oh so fast
Gotta make your money last

Learn from the past, oh
Time's a wastin'
Don't you take your time young man
Keep on driftin' and

Ain't no tellin' where you'll land
Sweet love and sunshine
If it's all in the air
Then it's all on your mind

Breathe baby
Come back to the world
Dig up all your pearls
Teach the boys and girls, hey

Livin' in a world that's oh so strange
Boy don't let your focus change
Takin' out the demons in your range, hey
Livin' in a world that's oh so fast

Gotta make your money last
Learn from the past, oh
Oh baby we need to smile (x4)
Time's a wastin'

Don't you take your time young man
Keep on driftin' and
Ain't no tellin' where you'll land
Oh baby we need to smile (x4)

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Time's a wastin'
Don't you take your time young man
Keep on driftin' and

Ain't no tellin' where you'll land
Ain't no tellin'
Oh, oh

    General CommentTime's a wastin
    Don't you take your time young man
    Keep on driftin and
    Ain't no tellin where you'll land

    Run baby, run, run
    Where you runnin to?
    And who you runnin from?
    Some people may not understand
    What it means to be a man
    Takin full command

    I think this song is regarding the rich culture of Black people's and our vibrant history.

    I specifically believe she is talking to Black men - who have lost vision, of their greatness.
    I love it, reminds me of an ex boyfriend.
