"Everything's Movin' Too Fast" as written by Peggy Lee and David M. Barbour....
It used to take a farmer a day to get to town.
Now it takes a minute 'til his plane comes down.

'Cause everything is movin' too fast.
Everything is movin' too fast.
Better save your money 'cause everything is movin' too fast.

You used to eat your spinach.
Now out never will.
Because you think it's nicer just to take a little pill.

'Cause everything is movin' too fast.
Everything is movin' too fast.
Better save your money 'cause everything is movin' too fast.

You used to talk of rockets shooting to the moon.
I thought that you were crazy, but I'm takin' one at noon.

'Cause everything is movin' too fast.
Everything is movin' too fast.
Better save your money 'cause everything is movin' too fast.

I had a covered wagon. Then a Model T.
I put 'em in the junkyard; they don't jump enough for me.

'Cause everything is movin' too fast.
Everything is movin' too fast.
Better save your money 'cause everything is movin' too fast.

Pappy used to get his kicks to music that was sweet.
Now he get his message from a boogie-woogie beat.

'Cause everything is movin' too fast.
Everything is movin' too fast.
Better save your money 'cause everything is movin' too fast.

Slow down. Slow Down. Slow Down. Everything is movin' too fast.
