Hope


Hope lies in tommorrow;
cannot wait to see her glow;
I am plagued by peril;
right from january;
Hope lies in tommorrow;
cannot wait to see her glow.

I toil, i weep;
my grin is not real;
I see her from afar;
never been there with her;
Hope lies in tommorrow;
cannot wait to see her glow.

How can i be cheerful;
they say i am fearful;
no food on the table;
cries from the cradle; she is but young;
nature's first born;
Hope lies in tommorrow;
cannot wait to see her glow.

I once thought of a better life;
my obsession day and night;
Hope lies in tommorrow;
cannot wait to see her glow.

My past hangs round about me;
my contribution is little;
There lies one in the past;
whose eyes always lit my path;
How can i forget her;
heresy is light.

Hope calls;
hope runs;
she surrounds;
Hope lies in tommorrow;
cannot wait to see her glow.

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
