ELVIS PRESLEY lyrics - Wisdom Of The Ages

ELVIS PRESLEY
"Wisdom Of The Ages"
(Bernie Baum / Bill Giant / Buddy Kaye)

Listen to the wisdom of the ages
Listen to the words of many sages

Live each day, as if it were your last
It's written in the stars, your destiny is cast
And that hourglass, runs too fast no doubt
For the sands of time are running out

Listen to the wisdom of the ages
These words can be found in history's pages

Live each day, for happiness can't wait
And love while you may, but heed the hand of fate
If the finger points, it's too late no doubt
For the sands of time are running out

But the man who turns and escapes somehow
Is the wisest of men
And to such a man, I'd bow
