“As time goes by”

Over all the years of my life
The clock has always been ticking
Making me go faster and faster
Looking after children when I was a child of 8 years
Tending to their needs
A baby girl of 9 weeks old and a boy of 18 months old
Now I had child who was delightful
No one had a book on how to be a parent
So you had to act out parts of being
The perfect human being
Making sure they were looked after
So you learnt to sew, cook and fed him his good food
Being a vegetarian was you had to rock with it
Many years missing out of the schooling
Then finding the way of trying to catch up
Boy nothing was easy
So one had to find the way
Perhaps one was crazy or was I sane?
So back to school with my child
And then knowing I did not have to act anymore
What work did I do before that?
Well here goes I did modeling, secretarial work
Singing at night clubs flying in planes with my employer to all the
Capitol cities in Australia, selling jukes boxes as the Juke Box were
So important and that is what we were into
Plus big time Aussie artist
They were happy and busy time and I loved it
As I still love music and lyrics
Then with my child his education was very important
So I took on management of a service station
And boy it was a rock and roll
We had the customers gave them good discounts
And played music different songs for everyday
So once again I won. Then I joined the Army
My dad was so proud of me and he loved me so
So with all the unconditional love that I received
My heart, brain, and soul was beating like a drum
So those days were my best, as we could laugh in the sunshine
And we did not have to cry in the rain
See you soon with all love and peace
