Mother Nature, Father Time

This song is by Brook Benton and appears on the compilation album This Is Brook Benton (1989) and on the compilation album The Essential Vik & RCA Victor Recordings (2016).

You're way on top now
And you're having a ball
You've got the world on a string
You think you've got everything

But you've got nothing at all
'Cause one day, you'll wake up
On the other side of the hill
Oh, if Mother Nature don't stop you
Father time will

The pace that you're setting
You know it's too fast
Tomorrow, you'll have no future
And there's nothing worth
Thinking of from your past

You're just breaking yourself
Robbing your own till
If Mother Nature don't stop you
Father Time sure will

Listen, you're heading
In the wrong direction
You're running from true love
And affection

I'm taking life seriously
To you, it's just a thrill
You better watch Mother Nature
Or Father Time surely will
Father Time sure will
