or
John Anderson

A one way ticket is all we need
No return, no guarantee
Straight ahead and don't look back
This train is on a one way track

Oh, oh, oh,
Life is a precious thing
Don't waste it all worrying

Time that's lost
Can't be returned
It's another long hard lesson learned

Teach your children not to hate
Hope they learn before it's too late
To get rid of the bad laws, and keep the good
Save the oceans and the woods

When will we all understand
That the future's in our hands

Once it's lost, it can't be returned
It's another long hard lesson learned

I can see the writing on the wall
Open up your eyes and heed the call

When you play with fire, you're bound to get burned
Another long hard lesson learned
(Repeat)
(Repeat)
(Repeat)
