lyrics

It's time to go now, let's go
We best be off home, come on now son
There'll be time tomorrow, we'll come back then
Arriving at the same time, same time leaving

If you can't do what you did before
If your shoes have already been filled
If you can't do what you did before

Walking with your head down, look up
Change your perspective, come on now son
Hands like shovels, listen here
Grips on your shoulder, whispers into your ear

If you can't do what you did before
If your shoes have already been filled
If you can't do what you did before

It's time to go son
It's time to go son
It's time to go, come on now
