 I have the New York Time    and fourteen dimes.
  C/                                            B7/                               E/
   And explanation of the most profound nursery rhymes.

E/           Am/             D/                          G/                Am/
Before the rivers run dry.    Before the last said goodbye.
                                           Em/                   Am/           B7/        B7/                    
Let us be kind to one another we can try.

 So don't just throw your love about.
          G/                Am/         Em/                         B7                                     Em/     Em/
  It's not  too late to find out.   Before the sand has all run out of the hourglass.

Em/                                 Em/  
The carnival is here     the crown appears
C/                                     B7/ 
Plastic painted people      hold each other near
Em/                                 Em/  
Hopes are always high    The echo of the sky
  C/                                       B7/                                    E/
and when it's over    There just a lonely sight of good-bye

E/           Am/        D/                            G/              Am/
Before the rivers run dry.    Before the last said goodbye.
                                          Em/                 Am/                   B7/        B7/                    
Let us be kind to one another we can try.  
    E/                    Am/                  D/
 So don't just throw your love about.
     G/          Am/            Em/                              B7                        Em/         Em/ 
  It's not  too late to find out.   Before the sand has all run out of the hourglass.

  
Em/                                         Em/                                           
 
too late to hide it now     it's all around as now.
  C/                                                B7/                          
Oh how I want you girl        to lie beside me now.
Em/                                              Em/                                                
While there still is time     and all my poems still rhymes
  C/                                                      B7/                                  E/    
Let me love you now
   We can drink the good good wine.
