Story Behind the Song

Carpe Diem

Lyrics

Gather ye rosebuds, my child, while ye may,
Old time's a flying so live for the day.
Red sky at night,
Shepherd's delight;
Sunshine is on the way.
Gather ye rosebuds, my child, while ye may.
Refrain: Go, girl, give it a whirl, I say.
There is no easy way, my precious pearl.

Follow your road from LA to Cathay.
No fixed abode 'neath the bright Milky Way.
Brambles and briars,
Devils and liars,
Let nothing you dismay.
Follow your road from LA to Cathay.
Refrain: Go, girl, etc.

Don't spurn the chance when the band starts to play.
Get up and dance and sing con amore.
Don't be discreet,
Swing to the beat,
Dance till you're old and grey.
Don't spurn the chance when the band starts to play.
Refrain: Go, girl, etc.
