IT JUST MIGHT BE TIME FOR A CHANGE

 

Ivan Bissell 6-6-00

As you stand on the floor

And can’t open the door;

 It just might be time for a change!

You put your marshmallow in the fire

And it turns black, like a tire;

It just might be time for a change!

If you tug your jeans up past your hip

And when you bend over, they go “rip”;

It just might be time for a change!

When you drive around in circles in your car

And you find you don’t seem to get very far;

It just might be time for a change!

If you’ve read every fishing book 

And you never even dampen a hook;

It just might be time for a change!

If you lift up both of your arms

And you see you’ve lost all of your charms;

It just might be time for a change!

When you tell time by a clock

That’s been smashed by a rock;

It just might be time for a change!

When you clean off your glasses

And you still can’t see the masses;

It just might be time for a change!

If the lights are turned on low

And you end up stubbing your big toe;

It just might be time for a change!

When you take a look in the mirror

And the sight of your hair causes you fear;

It just might be time for a change!

When your mate says that your breath

Smells a little bit like death;

It just might be time for a change!

When you go for a jog in the park

In my neighborhood after dark;

It just might be time for a change!

When the baby wears a diaper

And people want to avoid it like a viper;

It just might be time for a change!

When ole’ Professor D. Bunkie

Says we’ve all evolved from a monkey;

It just might be time for a change!

As you’re listening to the sermon

And what you hear makes you start squirmin’;

It just might be time for a change!

When the whole world says with a grin

That there is no such thing as sin;

It just might be time for a change!

When our schools fill our kids head

Teaching them that our God is dead;

It just might be time for a change!

When all of your friends begin to tell

That there is no such place as hell;

It just might be time for a change!

When your actions are evil and bold

And your heart within you grows cold;

It just might be time for a change!

But when it’s time for the last trumpet to blow

To heaven or hell each one will go;

There will be no time for a change!
