Seize the Day

Album: McCartney III (2020)
  • I don't care to be bad
    I prefer to think twice
    All I know is it's quite a show
    But it's still alright to be nice
    Yankee toes and Eskimos can turn to frozen ice

    When the cold days come
    and the old ways fade away
    There'll be no more sun
    and we'll wish that we had held on to the day
    Seize the day

    I don't mean to be wrong
    I don't need to be right
    I'm okay on a sunny day
    When the world deserves to be bright
    Dinosaurs and Santa Claus will stay indoors tonight

    When the cold days come
    and the old ways fade away
    There'll be no more sun
    and we'll wish that we had held on to the day
    Seize the day
    Seize the day

    I bless the day when you came into my life
    And I could finally roll back the blind
    You helped me to realize that love was the greatest prize
    I only had to open my mind

    Seize the day
    Seize the day
    Seize the day
    Seize the day
    Seize the day

    I don't care to be bad
    I prefer to think twice
    All I know is it's quite a show
    But it's still alright to be nice
    Yankee toes and Eskimos can turn to frozen ice

    When the cold days come
    and the old ways fade away
    There'll be no more sun
    and we'll wish that we had held on to the day
    Seize the day
    Seize the day
