Music for Life
Music is for a lifetime.
Keep the message grand and fine.
It holds great thoughts in every line.
In all the learning of life's ways,
Remember the part that music plays.
Enjoy a little in each and every day.
Time moves along with cares of a day.
Each melody has something to say.
Music lives on, it finds a way.
With great thoughts as an art
In music, they play a part
Expressing the desires of the heart.
Great music should last a lifetime.
Keep the message true and fine,
Great thoughts are expressed in every line.
Just keep on singing,
Let the clear rhythm be ringing.
Treasure the enjoyment it is bringing.
