An acoustic rock song. I originally envisioned this song with a full rock band, but ended up recording it on Spanish guitars.


Baby baby it's a long time, long time, it's a long time
Since I've seen you like this before
And baby, baby it's a long time, long time, it's a long time
Since I've seen you walking smiling through my door
And baby, baby it's a good day, good day, it's a good day
For singin' a happy song
And baby, baby it's high time, high time, it's high time
That you put your glad rags on, put 'em on

Sometimes people get lazy, lazy, they lay down
Don't wanna do anything
But if you've got life you gotta live it, live it, live it up now
You've gotta lift up your voice and sing (yeah yeah yeah)
So don't you tell me that it's rainin', rainin', rainin' down
That you can't see the risin' sun
'Cos the golden age is not over, over, over, no, no no
In fact it's only just begun
