Can't Put the Pen Down…

Last Call

Don’t tell me it’s time to lay it all down,
and leave it for someone else to haul.
Don’t tell me it’s time to give up my ghost
of a dream of having it all.
Last call. Last call.
Not much time left to read the wall.

Don’t say that it’s time to drink up and go
so someone else can clean it all away
Don’t tell me it’s time to put away the dice
there’s still too much game to play.
Last call. Last call.
Not much time left to watch them fall

So don’t stand there smiling and tell me it’s time
to walk away and leave what I’ve begun.
Don’t tell me to sit in the corner and watch
‘cause I’m just starting to have fun.
Last call. Last call.
Get on home child, I hear your Mama call.
