8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
You work and work for years and years, you're always on the go.
You never take a minute off, too busy makin' dough.
Someday, you say, you'll have your fun, when you're a millionaire,
Imagine all the fun you'll have in your old rockin' chair.
You're gonna take that ocean trip, no matter, come what may,
You've got your reservations made, but you just can't get away.
Next year for sure, you'll see the world, you'll really get around,
But how far can you travel when you're six feet underground?
Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think.
Enjoy yourself, while you're still in the pink.
The years go by, as quickly as a wink,
Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself, it's later than you think.
