"In the Meantime" as written by and Will Rambeaux Sherrie Austin....
Jeannie had big plans, a ballerina, Broadway bound
And that '87 Honda was gonna get her out of this town
Caviar for breakfast, a limo waiting every night
White chiffon and black tie, her name up on the marquee lights
Oh, how her star was gonna shine
Oh, but in the meantime

Make the coffee, read the paper
Late for work, dreams will wait 'til later
Get the bills paid, buy the groceries
No time to stop and smell the roses
Ain't it funny, ain't it fine
How life goes on, in the meantime

Bobby had a fast ball, everybody talked about
He made it to the minors, struck a hundred batters out
But something in his elbow, gave out in the final game
He had an operation, never threw quite the same
Yeah, he'll be back when his arm is fine
Yeah, but in the meantime

Make the coffee, read the paper
Late for work, dreams will wait 'til later
Get the bills paid, buy the groceries
No time to stop and smell the roses
Ain't it funny, ain't it fine
How life goes on, in the meantime

Now Jeannie takes the girls to dance class Wednesday afternoons
And Bobby coaches Little league, Junior will be pitching soon
Sometimes at night they laugh about old meant to be's and might have beens
But 6 o'clock comes early and it's time to start the day again

Make the coffee, read the paper
Late for work, dreams will wait 'til later
Get the bills paid, buy the groceries
No time to stop and smell the roses
Ain't it funny, ain't it fine
How life goes on, in the meantime
