  • You know people been talking about the end of time ever since time began
    We've been living in the last days ever since the first day ever since the dawn of Man
    Well nobody knows when the end is coming but some people tell you they do
    Well it might be today, it might be tomorrow, or in a million years or two

    In the meantime, in between time, let us make time to make it right
    And let us not fear what is not clear; faith should be your guide,
    Just follow this advice:

    And
    Think about love, think about living
    Think about love sharing and giving
    Drop the Doomsday attitude and let the spirit flow
    These are wonderful times we're living in
    God still walks in the hearts of Men
    And Eden's garden waves within so let the flowers grow

    Well we rant and we rave about the "good ol' days"
    And how different it was "back then"
    Well the greatest days we've ever known are the days we're living in
    Well we worry about earthquakes, aliens from outer space, nuclear holocaust
    Well we're so consumed with the fear of dying; the joy of living is lost

    In the meantime, in between time, let us make time to make amends
    Lead the good life, just treat this planet right
    And try to all be friends and say with me again:

    Ohhh!
    Think about life, think about living
    Think about love caring and giving
    Drop this Doomsday attitude and get on with the show
    We've walked on the moon; been to Mars
    Technically we've come so far
    But still we wonder who we are
    The farther along we go
    (Doodle-doodle doo-doo-doo ooh-ooh)

    You know people been talking about the end of time ever since time began
    We've been living in the last days ever since the first day ever since the dawn of Man
    Well nobody knows when the end is coming, well that's what the Scriptures say
    But that's a secret known only to God, he says to just watch and pray

    In the meantime, what's the hurry?
    In the meantime now don't you worry
    In the meantime live, laugh- be merry
    In the meantime, in the meantime
    In the meantime troubles gonna show us
    In the meantime the sky is still above us
    In the meantime you know God's gonna love us
    In the meantime, in the meantime, in the meantime Writer/s: DOLLY PARTON
