THE United States

There’s a proverb
'United we stand divided we fall'
Ten’s sticks together unbreakable
Can be broken easily if given to all.

Wind easily blows the dust
But cannot move the rock;
Birds trapped in net, united,
Along with net, flew the flock.

As well, If people are united
For valid and right cause,
There can't be any reason
Their efforts will pause.
- S.D. Tiwari

You work and work for years and years,
____ you're always on the go
You never take a minute off,
____ too busy makin' dough
Someday you say, you'll have your fun,
____ when you're a millionaire
Imagine all the fun you'll have
____ in your old rockin' chair

Enjoy yourself,
____ it's later than you think
Enjoy yourself,
____ while you're still in the pink
The years go by,
____ as quickly as a wink
Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself,
____ it's later than you think

You're gonna take that ocean trip,
____ no matter come what may
You've got your reservations made,
____ but you just can't get away
Next year for sure, you'll see the world,
____ you'll really get around
But how far can you travel
____ when you're six feet underground?

Your heart of hearts, your dream of dreams,
____ your ravishing brunette
She's left you and she's now become
____ somebody else's pet
Lay down that gun, don't try my friend
____ to reach the great beyond
You'll have more fun by reaching for
____ a redhead or a blonde

Enjoy yourself,
____ it's later than you think
Enjoy yourself,
____ while you're still in the pink
The years go by,
____ as quickly as a wink
Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself,
____ it's later than you think

You never go to night clubs and
____ you just don't care to dance
You don't have time for silly things
____ like moonlight and romance
You only think of dollar bills
____ tied neatly in a stack
But when you kiss a dollar bill,
____ it doesn't kiss you back

Enjoy yourself,
____ it's later than you think
Enjoy yourself,
____ while you're still in the pink
The years go by,
____ as quickly as a wink
Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself,
____ it's later than you think

Once upon a time, Great Pearls of Wisdom dropped unexpectedly from the oddest sources. Today, we must delve into the Past to ferret them out.

HAPPY FOURTH, FJ! I hope you do something delightfully old-fashioned, prosaic and all-American with family and friends to mark the occasion.

-FJ said...

Thanks, FT! I hope your day will be as least as delightful as my own... today, we'll waste away courtesy of Arthur, but tomorrow, we BBQ w/my two sons and their wives/significant others. :)

May more Americans once again find that valid and right cause!

Happy Independence Day to you and yours, FJ!

-FJ said...

Thank you, AoW! And I hope that you and Mr. AoW have the opportunity to relax a bit and enjoy the day. There may be grey skies at present, but they, too, will soon pass.

Always On Watch said...

Grey skies, huh?

We've had full sun for several hours now.

After the radio show -- Warren today -- I'm going to dash out to the deli and pick up sandwiches for dinner. It's too windy here to grill.

I doubt that Mr. AOW and I will attend a fireworks display. His scooter doesn't have any headlights or taillights.

-FJ said...

I guess a hundred miles make a difference. ?;)

FJ,
The weather-front line has to be somewhere. ;^)
