though days are dragging
and you lie awake nights
energy flagging
no wind for your kites
though you’re in trouble
up to your ass
this too shall pass
this too shall pass

when you are scoring
at the top of your game
accolades soaring
along with your fame
good fortune flowing
going first-class
this too shall pass
this too shall pass

whether times
are good or bad
all too soon
they’ll be times you had
enjoy the windfalls
survive the blows
everything changes
that’s how the time goes

though hair is graying
i’m not feeling old
body decaying
head young and bold
who is that joker
in my looking glass?
this too shall pass
this too shall pass
this too shall pass
