All those decades ago.

v

They said.

  1. C. J. Black.

Remember heed the rule

Don’t tell tales out of school

So I was told all those years ago

Always have your ducks lined up in a row.

 

You’ll never drown once you, keep your head above water

There is life in the here after

So I was told all those years ago

Always keep a happy face, when you’re on the go.

 

Hurry on now, take your time

You won’t feel it ‘till you’re in your prime

So I was told all those years ago

Keep your mouth shut while you’re eating, you look a holy show.

 

Off you go now, don’t be there ‘till you’re back

Take heed of your elders, they’ll set you on the right track

So I was told all those years ago

Always shame the devil or too hell you’ll go.

 

When I was but a youth the elders used to say

Don’t give up on a thought “seize the day”

So I was told all those years ago

A consequence of this, words continue to flow.
