Out to Pasture (Lyrics)

OUT TO PASTURE

You had your shot you had your time
you had your - had your day

You called the plays ya did amaze
you always got your way

now you've fallen on your sabre
you're not the latest flavour
you didn't stop to savour what you had

You don't have to be so bitter
we know you're not a quitter
but perhaps it's time to call it a day

should we fetch a baby sitter
should we call in someone fitter
should we put you out to pasture to graze

2.
there was a place, there was a time
they hung on every word
you held your court and every sound you made
your courtiers heard

You reigned in your dominion
when you uttered an opinion
there never was suspicion, you'd be ignored

You grew in poise & wisdom
You learned to work the system
but the audience moved on or worse, got bored

should we fetch a baby sitter
should we call in someone fitter
should we put you out to pasture to graze
should we put you out to pasture to graze

GO TO SLEEP, COUNT YOUR SHEEP
YOU HAVE EARNED YOUR KEEP
YOU CAN DREAM LIKE YOU DREAMED
WISHES DO COME TRUE

You can offer all your learning
Your passions & your yearnings
but you can't amortize the earnings that you made

TIME to fetch a baby sitter
CALL in someone fitter
SEEMS they've put you out to pasture to graze
should we put you out to pasture to graze
yes, they put you out to pasture to graze
yes, they put you out to pasture to graze
