LIVING TO A HUNDRED
Words and Music by Roger Coghill
There’s no need for animosity, now
There’s a thousand apples on the tree, now
Live your life the way you want to be, now
And don’t plan to live a century.
Learn the meaning of emancipation, now
Buy a season ticket at the station, now
You can always choose your destination, now
But don’t plan to live a century.
We are just a bunch of guys on earth together, now
Feeling summer suns and winter weather, now
None of us is going to live for ever, now
So don’t plan to iive a century.
Touch another skin not just a screen, now
Make where you’re going not just where you’ve been, now
Every day should be a different scene, now
Yet don’t plan to live a century.
Thirty thousand dawns is all we get now
Thirty thousand times the sun will set, now
Some have all gone, but there are still some yet, now.
Just don’t plan to live a century.
Just make sure the best is yet to be …
And maybe you will live a century.
