Outside my house, there's a cactus plant they call the Century Tree
Only once every hundred years it flowers gracefully
And you never know when it will bloom

[chorus]
Hey, do you wanna come out and play the game?
It's never too late
Hey, do you wanna come out and play the game?
It's never too late

Clementine Hunter was 54 when she packed up her paint
Old Uncle Taylor was 81 when he rode his bike across the plains of China
And the sun was shining on that day
Just like today

[chorus]

He didn't know how to tell her
For over thirty years
He kept locked up inside himself
No one saw the tears
But then she went away
And he woke up that day

Now he brings roses to his sweetheart
She lives most anywhere
He sees somebody suffering
He knows that despair
So he offers them a rose
And some quiet prose
About dancing in a shimmering ballroom
'Cause you never know when it will bloom

[chorus until fade]
