Come lady hourglass
Take me by the hand
I'll shower you with gifts
If you'll just make the hard times pass

You're tall and blue and crystalline
I'll be yours if you'll be mine
In this ancient battle against time
We're bound to make a mark

We gotta get some weight on that tiny waist
Yeah, open up that little space
With chocolate covered lollypops
And all that stuff

We'll break the spirits of the sand
In every hourglass of the land
Sand's rushing to your feet
Just like your head's on fire

Your head's on fire!
Your head's on fire!
Your head's on fire!
Your head's on fire!

Your head's on fire!
Your head's on fire!
Your head's on fire!
Your head's on fire!

Now it's been seven years inside a month
And I think I our plan, it worked too much
'Cause yesterday I woke up
And my life was gone

My hair is grey, my skin is tough
I'm wrinkled and my voice is rough
Tell me lady hourglass,
What went wrong?

"Boy, you gave me lollipops
And chocolate covered lemon drops
My waist it grew, the sand it dropped
And time flew by

With every single grain of sand
That passes through my crystal hands
A child is born, a boy's a man
This you have to understand

So play the cards that you were dealt
No matter if you're feeling well
The best will come around to you, even if...
The best will come, the best will come
The best will come around to you
Even if your head's on fire"

Your head's on fire!
Your head's on fire!
Your head's on fire!
Your head's on fire!

Your head's on fire!
Your head's on fire!
Your head's on fire!
Your head's on fire!

Your head's on fire!
Your head's on fire!
Your head's on fire!
Your head's on fire!

Your head's on fire!
Your head's on fire!
Your head's on fire!
Your head's on fire!

Your head's on fire!
Your head's on fire!
Your head's on fire!
Your head's on fire!

    General CommentCute fable. Basically, take it slow and savor every moment you're given, even the bad times, because you'll be old before you know it.
