What Will Tomorrow Bring?

Tomorrow, tomorrow!
Oh! How we count on tomorrow!
But you see, tomorrow is fickle
for it never comes and our hopes, dreams
and best laid plans often burn in the ashes
of tomorrow's flames.

Ah! Live for today and let tomorrow
take care of itself. For you see,
tomorrow is promised to no one.
While today belongs to all,
the butcher, baker, candle stick
maker and even the old undertaker.

Tomorrow is just a carrot on the
proverbial stick and today is for real!
So don't put off until tomorrow what
today you really feel.

For you see…
tomorrow never comes.
