Could this be my destiny

Or simply serendipity?

Music makes it clear to see

This is my philosophy


A head of my time probably

Yet retro paradoxically

A life full of irony

Lived so enigmatically


Did fate declare this meant to be?

Did Lady Luck smile down at me?

One thing I know with certainty

Music lets my soul fly free


What does it all mean finally?

What’s the secret of ecstasy?

It really is no mystery

The answer comes majestically


Take your opportunities

And make your opportunities

For time and tide wait for no man

Seize the moment grasp the chance

Never with a backward glance

For time and tide wait for no man
