Dolly Parton In the Meantime Lyrics

You know people been talking about the end of time ever since time began
We've been living in the last days ever since the first day ever since the dawn of Man
Well nobody knows when the end is coming but some people tell you they do
Well it might be today, it might be tomorrow, or in a million years or two...

In the meantime, in between time, let us make time to make it right

And let us not fear what is not clear; faith should be your guide, just follow this advice:

And...

Think about love; Think about living

Think about love-- sharing and giving

Drop the Doomsday attitude and let the spirit flow

These are wonderful times we're living in

God still walks in the hearts of Men

And Eden's garden waves within so let the flowers grow

Well we rant and we rave about the "good ol' days" and how different it was "back then"

Well the greatest days we've ever known are the days we're living in

Well we worry about earthquakes, aliens from outer s___e, nuclear holocaust

Well we're so consumed with the fear of dying; the joy of living is lost

In the meantime, in between time, let us make time to make amends

Lead the good life, just treat this planet right and try to all be friends and say with me again:

Ohhh...!

Think about life; Think about living

Think about love-- caring and giving

Drop this Doomsday attitude and get on with the show

We've walked on the moon; been to Mars

Technically we've come so far

But still we wonder who we are

The farther along we go

You know people been talking about the end of time ever since time began

We've been living in the last days ever since the first day ever since the dawn of Man

Well nobody knows when the end is coming-well that's what the Scriptures say

But that's a secret known only to God, he says to just watch and pray

In the meantime, what's the hurry?

In the meantime now don't you worry

In the meantime live, laugh- be merry

In the meantime, in the meantime

In the meantime troubles gonna show us

In the meantime the sky is still above us

In the meantime you know God's gonna love us

In the meantime, in the meantime, in the meantime...
