TAKE TIME (THE WEEKEND SONG)
Words and Music by James Keith Norman

VERSE #1:
Another working week is over.
Five days of crazy stress are through.
Seems there’s always a fire to put out
and nutty deadlines I’m rushing to.
But now this weekend, I’ll be in my backyard,
doing nothing; at least, nothing too hard.
mostly listen to birdies sing and stare at skies of blue.

I’ll just…

CHORUS:
Take time, unwind,
stop my worrying.
Kick back, relax,
stop my hurrying,
Give it a rest till
I’m no longer stressed.
And feel again my life is simply truly blessed.

VERSE #2:
I have a good friend who once told me
he worked so much he got the shakes.
Thought his job would pay for good times
but it just gave him pains and aches.
He found a new job; now lives another way,
making room for fun each and every day,
and judges life by the joy he gets, not the toll it takes.
And I just…

CHORUS:
Take time, unwind,
stop my worrying.
Kick back, relax,
stop my hurrying,
Give it a rest till
I’m no longer stressed.
And feel again my life is simply truly blessed.

VERSE #3:
All my friends are coming Sunday
to my place for a barbecue.
Now, I know some will come all tensed up.
For them, here’s what I plan to do.
I will play for them this here little song,
and try to get them all to sing along
and maybe they’ll see a path to a life they are due.
And me, I’ll…

CHORUS.
CHORUS:
Take time, unwind,
stop my worrying.
Kick back, relax,
stop my hurrying,
Give it a rest till
I’m no longer stressed.
And feel again my life is simply truly blessed.
And feel my life just isn’t some unruly test,
feel once more my life can’t be unduly messed,
feel again my life is simply, truly blessed.
