Get busy living

by Kareem Salama

Lyrics:

Every single day someone is born and some dies
It wasn’t long ago my uncle passed and my little niece came to life
I get to thinking about my time and go and it won’t be long from now
I shiver inside at the chance that I might leave a life untouched by a vow

(Chorus)

And I believe tonight is the night that I decide
That I get busy living and I get ready to die
So that when the fateful day does come
When I’m six feet in the ground
The poor and the weak and the orphan and meek will miss having me around

When I pass I don’t want to leave a life of regret
So I give rise to change today by trying not to forget
That pleasures do pass and sunrises end and stars do fade away
But it’s love and it’s virtue and honor and truth that remain for all days

(Chorus)

And I believe tonight is the night that I decide
That I get busy living and I get ready to die
So that when the fateful day does come
When I’m six feet in the ground
The poor and the weak and the orphan and meek will miss having me around

(Bridge)

I want that final breath to be the sweetest of all
And it will be with certainty if I answer the call
To help all those in need and decipher the meaning of life
Cause the seekers of truth they fear not death any more than they fear life

(Chorus)

And I believe tonight is the night that I decide
That I get busy living and I get ready to die
So that when the fateful day does come
When I’m six feet in the ground
The poor and the weak and the orphan and meek will miss having me around
