MOSE ALLISON lyrics - If You Live

MOSE ALLISON
"If You Live"
(Mose Allison)

Well if you live
Your time will come
I say if you live
Your time will come

So child don't mess with that cotton sack
It's gonna scratch your knees and bend your back
I say if you live
Your time will come

Well if you live
Your day will come
I say if you live
Your day will come

So child don't play with those pots and pans
They gonna soon enough ruin your pretty hands
And if you live
Your time will come

Well if you live
A day will come
I say if you live
A day will come
When the sun will shine and the crops will grow
And you think that you not gonna worry no more

I say if you live
Your time will come
Your time will come
