By Robby Benson
I have a blue balloon, a happy tune.
Long enough to last me all thro’ the afternoon,
I have the " New York Times", fourteen dimes,
The explanation of the most profound nursery rhymes.

Before the rivers run dry, before the last sad goodbye
Let’s be kind to one another we can try.
So don’t just throw your love about it’s not too late to find out
Before the sand has all run out of the hourglass.

The carnival is here, the clowns appear
Plastic painted people hold each other near,
Hopes are always high they echo off the sky, when it’s over
There’s just the lonely sound of goodbye.

Too late to hide it now, it’s all around us now,
Oh, how I want you girl, to lie beside me now,
While there still is time, and all my poems still rhyme
Let me love you now, we can drink the good good wine.
So don’t just throw your love about, you and me,
Hey, let’s find out
Before the sand has all run out of the hourglass.
