MY OWN SWEET TIME
By Richard Eaves

Music by George Fogelman

All that bounding is astounding to the loris in the tree.
It all seems such a silly notion.
All that hopping should be stopping. What a waste of energy.
He'd rather poke along in slow motion.
I'd rather poke along in slow motion.

Why all the rush? Why all the worry?
Well, I'll get there just fine.
What's the big deal? What's the big hurry?
I'll just take my own sweet time.
Yes, I will.

All that flying, mystifying to the loris in the tree.
It all seems such a silly notion.
All that soaring, simply boring; it's as foolish as can be.
He'd rather poke along in slow motion.
I'd rather poke along in slow motion.

Why all the rush? Why all the worry?
Yeah, well, I'll get there just fine.
What's the big deal. What's the big hurry?
I'll just take my own sweet time.

All that lurching is disconcerting to the loris, certainly.
All those bounces he denounces.
He says, "Well, that's no way to climb a tree."

why all the rush? Why all the worry?
Oh, I'll get there just fine.
What's the big deal? What's the big hurry?
I'll just take my own sweet time.
Yes, I will.
I'm gonna take my own sweet time.
You know I will.
I'm gonna take my own sweet time.
Oh, yeah.
