Busyness copyright by me

 

Rushing around with so much to do
The week is gone before everything’s done.
Concerned about this and concerned about that
This project’s due and that needs fixing.

No time to pay attention
To others around us
They will understand
If work comes before them.

Rushing around with so much to do
The week is gone before everything’s done.
Concerned about this and concerned about that
This project’s due and that needs fixing.

Sometimes we wonder
Just how to do it.
Meet our work deadlines
And help kids with their homework.

Rushing around with so much to do
The week is gone before everything’s done
Concerned about this and concerned about that
This project’s due and that needs fixing.

A friend is talking to us
And we’re barely listening
Our spouse is crying
And we ignore their tears.

Rushing around with so much to do
The week is gone before everything’s done
Concerned about this and concerned about that
This project’s due and that needs fixing.

When our final days come
And work has come first
Who will be there
To give us their love?

Rushing around with so much to do
The week is gone before everything’s done
Concerned about this and concerned about that
This project’s due and that needs fixing.

Putting busyness first as we often do
Leaves less time for people
And, ultimately,
Less love and joy for you
